This just in from Deadline.com: during a preview of their upcoming program slate, Spanish-language network Univision announced a partnership with El Rey Network, a new English-language cable channel co-founded by Robert Rodriguez (Planet Terror) which will focus on action-oriented programming. One of the original shows in line for the network's premiere is a series adaptation of From Dusk Till Dawn, the 1996 vampire/crime/action mashup from Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino.
“The El Rey Network is going to be the home of kick-ass entertainment,” Rodriguez declared.
In addition to From Dusk Till Dawn, the channel will also air a yet-unnamed action series developed by producers Alex Kurtzman and Robert Orci (Fringe, Star Trek Into Darkness). El Rey is slated to launch late this year... more details coming soon!
