Rodriguez to produce “From Dusk Till Dawn” TV series

May 15, 2013

While Amazon is still deciding whether or not to order ZOMBIELAND to series and SCREAM is officially entering the pilot stage over at MTV, we can add FROM DUSK TILL DAWN to the growing list of projects in development.

According to Coming Soon, original From Dusk Till Dawn director Robert Rodriguez unveiled plans for the show this week, while also unveiling plans for an entire new cable network aimed at young-adult audiences called El Rey, which he has co-created, partnering with Univision Communications Inc. The English-language El Rey – which is set to premiere this December nation-wide with initial carriage via Comcast – would air From Dusk Till Dawn as its first scripted series.

Rodriguez, who is obviously heavily involved in getting the network off the ground, will be writing, producing and directing the From Dusk Till Dawn series himself. The show will expand on the story and characters from his original film, while providing a wider scope and richer Aztec mythology. There is no word on if any events from either of the two sequels will be mentioned, but since Rodriguez only served as producer on those projects.

I’m kinda excited about all these horror related shows getting picked up that are based on successful franchises.  I just hope it doesn’t become a new fad that is eventually beaten to death.
