Robert Rodriguez’s TV series adaptation of From Dusk Till Dawn is set to premiere on El Rey Network next month, and today we got the first image from the show.  From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series finds D.J. Cotrona (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) inhabiting the role of bank robber Seth Gecko (played in the film by George Clooney) and Zane Holtz (Holes) playing his violent, unpredictable brother Richard “Richie” Gecko (played in the film by Quentin Tarantino).  In the 10-episode drama series, the Gecko brothers are on the run from the FBI and Texas Rangers when they take a former pastor and his family hostage and stumble upon a strip club populated by vampires.  This exclusive new image is of actress Madison Davenport, who fills the role of Kate Fuller, previously played by Juliette Lewis in the film.  Fuller is the daughter of former pastor Jacob Fuller and hostage of the Gecko brothers.

The show also stars Don Johnson, Robert Patrick, Jesse Garcia, Brandon Soo Hoo, Eiza Gonzalez, and Wilmer Valderrama.  The pilot for From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series will premiere at the SXSW festival on March 8th, followed by its television debut on El Rey Network March 11th at 9pm ET.


Here’s the official synopsis for From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series:

The network’s first scripted original on Robert Rodriguez’s new genre-busting cable network, 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.
