‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ TV Series Begins Filming This Fall
Here’s a real quick slice of news that’s gone largely unnoticed the last few days. According to Production Weekly, production on the new From Dusk Till Dawn television series will get underway in mid-October.
The original film (which went on to inspire two sequels, one of which was solid, the other terrible) was directed by Robert Rodriguez and written by Robert Kurtzman and Quentin Tarantino. It was a breakout big screen role for the now immensely popular George Clooney, and it managed to debut in the #1 slot at the box office back in 1996, beating out quality efforts like Mr. Holland’s Opus and 12 Monkeys. The following the feature has picked up since hitting home video is absolutely staggering, as this violent bloodsucker tale remains one of the most popular subgenre titles to see release over the last few decades.
Will a television transfer win fans over? It’s hard to say, especially given the very, very inconsistent reviews From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money and From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangman's Daughter garnered. We’re game to find out one way or another.
The series will debut on the Robert Rodriguez established English-language cable network El Rey (who partner with Univision for the series). El Rey will debut later this year via Comcast.
