We have an exclusive Matador clip from the show’s next episode to debut today. From writer/producer Roberto Orci, the 13-episode series airs on the newly launched El Rey network and revolves around an undercover CIA operative masquerading as a professional soccer star. Gabriel Luna leads the show as Tony “Matador” Bravo, who uses his skills to get close to LA Riot team owner Galan (Alfred Molina). This clip is from the show’s fifth episode, “Enter the Worm”, as we see Molina’s villainous character explaining one of his sinister plans.

Here’s the official logline for Matador episode 5, “Enter the Worm”:
Whisked away on Galan’s private jet, Tony, Holester, and Caesar touchdown in Nicaragua, a world run by a drug cartel leader known as “The Worm,” where the stakes are high and the death rate is higher. Aided by an old DEA friend, Tony finds himself in a brutal futsal game where the prize is more than just walking away with your life.
