During the SXSW Film Festival, I sat down with Austin-based filmmaker Robert Rodriguez (“Sin City”) to talk about his new TV network El Rey and its first original program “From Dusk Till Dawn.” The series is based from Rodriguez’s 1996 thriller of the same name, which starred George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino as criminal brothers Seth and Richie Gecko. The small-screen version stars D.J. Cotrona and Zane Holtz in those same roles. The cast also features Robert Patrick (“Terminator 2: Judgment Day”), Don Johnson (“Django Unchained”) and Wilmer Valderrama (“From Prada to Nada”).
New episodes of “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” air Tuesdays at 7pm CT.
