The network's first scripted original on Robert Rodriguez's new genre-busting cable network, "From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series" is based on the thrill-ride film of the same name. The 10-episode serialized drama is centered around bank robber, Seth Gecko and his violent, unpredictable brother, Richard "Richie" Gecko, who are wanted by the FBI and Texas Rangers Earl McGraw and Freddie Gonzalez after a bank heist left several people dead. While on the run to Mexico, Seth and Richie encounter former pastor Jacob Fuller 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 "From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series" pilot episode will have its world premiere screening at SXSW 2014 on Saturday, March 8th at 4:30PM CT at the Vimeo Theater. The series will premiere on El Rey Network, Tuesday, March 11th at 9pm ET/PT
