Get Your First Look at Danny Trejo as The Regulator in From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series
Now this is how to kick off a work week after a three-day weekend! El Rey Network and Miramax hve released a first-look image of “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” featuring Danny Trejo (Machete, Machete Kills) in his new role as”The Regulator,” a horrifying agent of evil who is summoned to perform a deadly errand. In case you’ve forgotten, Trejo also appeared in the From Dusk Till Dawn film franchise as “Razor Charlie.”
Currently in production on its sophomore season, “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” is slated to return in late summer 2015.
Jeff Fahey, Esai Morales, and Briana Evigan have also joined the cast with Evigan portraying Sonja, an American expatriate working as a tattoo artist in a Mexican mercado. The returning cast includes D.J. Cotrona, Zane Holtz, Jesse Garcia, Eiza González, Wilmer Valderrama, Madison Davenport, and Brandon Soo Hoo.
Season One of “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” centered on bank robber Seth Gecko (Cotrona) and his violent, unpredictable brother, Richard “Richie” Gecko (Holtz), who were on the run to Mexico when they encountered former pastor Jacob Fuller (Robert Patrick) and his family, who were taken hostage. Using the family RV to cross the Border, chaos ensued when the group detoured to the Titty Twister, a strip club populated by culebras, snake-like ancient creatures who survive by drinking human blood. They were forced to fight until dawn in order to get out alive.
Season Two explores a new chapter in this supernatural crime saga that travels from Mexico to the edgy, tricked-out Texas of Robert Rodriguez. It also deepens and complicates the core relationships between the characters, while adding new faces and new dynamics. Season Two begins with our characters in their separate worlds – Santanico (Gonzalez) and Richie (Holtz) are outside Houston, living like Bonnie and Clyde; Seth and Kate (Davenport) are scraping by South of the Border; and Freddie Gonzalez (Garcia) is protecting his wife and young daughter in a Houston suburb. Carlos Madrigal (Valderrama) and Scott Fuller (Soo-Hoo) emerge from the Titty Twister, changed men. They will all come together once again – this time facing off against an even bigger threat.
“From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” is a Miramax production in association with Rodriguez International Pictures, FactoryMade Ventures, and Sugarcane Entertainment. Executive producers are Robert Rodriguez, Carlos Coto (also showrunner), Diego Gutierrez (also writer), FactoryMade Ventures and El Rey Network co-founders John Fogelman and Cristina Patwa, and Miramax’s Zanne Devine and Daniel Pipski.
Miramax is distributing “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” internationally in all territories.
