Three more names have been added to the Austin-based production of the upcoming "From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series." Adrianne Palicki ("Friday Night Lights," G.I. Joe: Retaliation), Jake Busey (Starship Troopers, Enemy of the State) and Lane Garrison (Bonnie & Clyde, Prison Break) are set to join D.J. Cotrona, Zane Holtz, Jesse Garcia, Don Johnson, Robert Patrick, Madison Davenport, Brandon Soo Hoo, Eiza González and Wilmer Valderrama.

Palicki will portray Vanessa Styles, a woman from Seth Gecko's past. Lane Garrison will play Pete, the clerk at Benny's World of Liquor which the Gecko brothers take over in the pilot; and Jake Busey stars as Professor Aiden Tanner, an eccentric intellectual obsessed with the Mesoamerican mythology behind the vampires.

Based on Rodriguez's hit 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 the run to Mexico, Seth and Richie encounter former minister Jacob Fuller (Patrick) and his family, whom they take hostage. Using the family RV to cross the border, chaos ensues when the group detours to a strip club that is populated by vampires. They are forced 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 creatures inside the club.

"From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series" is an El Rey Network production in association with FactoryMade Ventures. Executive producers are Robert Rodriguez, Carlos Coto (who is also showrunner) and FactoryMade Ventures and El Rey Network co-founders John Fogelman and Cristina Patwa. Diego Gutierrez is writer and co-executive producer. Robert Rodriguez will direct the first two installments. Miramax, producing studio and distributor of the original film, is distributing the series internationally in all territories with the exception of Canada, China, India and UK.
