Robert Rodriguez‘s new television network El Rey has released the first trailer for its flagship series From Dusk Till Dawn: The SeriesD.J. Cotrona and Zane Holtz star as the Gecko brothers (subbing in for George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino in the 1996 movie), fighting the undead as they run from the law.  The production values fail to impress—the painful attempts at stylish cool don’t help—but hopefully it plays better in the context of the hourlong series than it does a two-and-a-half minute trailer.

Rodriguez directed the first two episodes of the ten-episode season.  Jesse Garcia, Don Johnson, Wilmer Valderrama, and Robert Patrick co-star.  From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series premieres March 11 on El Rey.  Watch the trailer after the jump.

Here’s the full synopsis:

from-dusk-till-dawn-tv-series

Based on the thrill-ride film, “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” is a supernatural crime saga centered around bank robber, Seth Gecko (Cotrona) and his violent, unpredictable brother, Richard “Richie” Gecko (Holtz), who are wanted by the FBI and Texas Rangers Earl McGraw (Johnson) and Freddie Gonzalez (Garcia) after a bank heist left several people dead. While on an escape route to Mexico, Seth and Richie encounter former minister Jacob Fuller and his family who they take hostage. Using the family RV to make a run for the Mexican border, chaos ensues when the group detours to a strip club that is unknowingly populated by vampires, and forces them to fight until dawn in order to get out alive. The series deepens the tone of the film, adds new characters and backstories and expands the Mesoamerican mythology behind the vampires.

    “Everybody be cool. YOU, be cool.” Clooney did it better.

    • Lee Harvey Cobblepot

      Yeah, and this guy is a bit of a douchebag in a way that Clooney always managed to avoid.
      But: Don Johnson is in this? And Robert Patrick? Well, I’ll at least check it out!

    The writing and acting looks fairly spotty, but hey, it has Big Kahuna Burger.

    • LEM

      I hear they have tasty burgers.

    how come Robert Rodriguez keeps focusing on shit like this instead of getting us Sin City 2? i know he’s finally working on that now, but what the hell. we didn’t need two Machete movies, another Spy Kids, this series, and some other bull shit in between

    • cezar211091 .

      A lobe man huh?

    It looks like it’s just rehashing the movie so how is it going to sustain a series and WTF is El Rey network?

    They filmed a scene at a diner 2 blocks from where I work, and they actually rented out our building to feed lunch to the staff. I think the shot of Don Johnson at 1:54 is from the local diner, but there’s not exactly much there to be able to tell.

    Why does it seem like Rodriguez is reverting in his craft? The guy started off so promising w El Mariachi, Desperado, Frum Dusk til Dawn, the Faculty (guilty pleasure), and even the 1st Spy Kids film. His last great film was Sin City and that was a collaboration between him Tarentino (not sure how much input he actually did) and Frank Miller. It’s like he struck it out of the park after he made that film and then got lazy and reverted to making crappy kids films (not hating that they’re kids film but hating that they are actually crappy films) and Grindhouse schlock fest that would be entertaining as 2 min trailers. Get back out of your comfort zone and direct something fun again. Hoping Sin City 2 isn’t a let down as its been in limbo for what seems like an eternity. My wish is for him to team up w Fox and make a Deadpool movie as it matches his style.

      sin city was really just a colab between him and frank miller tarantino only directed the scene where benicio del toro had his throat cut conversation with clive owen and judging by frank miller’s solo directing effort i’d say sin city was at least an even split if not more rodriguez

    Are we really going to see the whole convenience store thing recreated with these two nobody’s?? Like…I get down with From Dusk Till Dawn, and the first half is pretty miraculous as far as gritty crime flicks go and Rodriguez’s own directing merits, but the opening scene is AWESOME…I really don’t want to see it half-assed minus the quartet of young Clooney, creepy Tarantino, greasy John Hawkes, and drawling Michael Parks.

  • Giovanni Luis Jiminez

    Why rehash the story but yet not have Tarantinos character die just to have a prolonged tv series. If thats the direction they are going why not a whole new story or a side story of the brothers instead ?
