Robert Rodriguez has just released, through his Twitter account, the first behind-the-scenes image from his upcoming "From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series." Check out the rebuilt Benny's World of Liquor, which fans will remember from the opening of the 1996 film.
"Benny’s world of liquor is back in business," Rodriguez writes. "#fromdusktilldawn – the series is coming to @elreynetwork."
The series stars D.J. Cotrona, Zane Holtz, Jesse Garcia, Don Johnson, Robert Patrick, Madison Davenport, Brandon Soo Hoo and Eiza González.
Based on the film of the same name, "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.
The 10-episode serialized drama will serve as the first original scripted series to air on the new El Rey Network, which launches this December.
