‘From Dusk Till Dawn,’ the TV Series, Will Be on Netflix Internationally

/ Mar 6, 2014


If you’re a fan of Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino’s cult horror-action film “From Dusk Till Dawn,” and you have a Netflix account, you’re in luck! Netflix has inked a deal with Miramax, Rodriguez’s El Rey Network, and FactoryMade Ventures to exclusively stream the TV version of “From Dusk Till Dawn.”

Problem is, the deal only covers international territories Netflix is available in. If you want to watch “From Dusk Till Dawn” in the US, you’re going to have to pay for the El Rey Network. And for that, you’re going to need to be a subscriber of Comcast, DirecTV, or Time Warner Cable. Otherwise, tough cookies, as they say.

That said, Netflix is still calling the show a “Netflix Original” in the announcement. Which goes to show, at this point, the difference between what a Netflix series and a TV series is really just depends on the country you live in.

“From Dusk Till Dawn” will premiere in Canada, Ireland, the Netherlands, Nordics, and the UK on March 12, with a Latin American release scheduled a week later. New episodes of the show will arrive in Europe and Canada 24 hours after the US broadcast (so you won’t even be able to binge-watch!). Latin America will get them a week later.

“From Dusk Till Dawn” is Robert Rodriguez’s first foray into serialized TV drama. The show is essentially a remake of the film, with DJ Cotrona stepping in for George Clooney as Seth Gecko and Zane Holtz replacing Tarantino as Richard “Richie” Gecko.

If you haven’t seen the movie (and you really should), here’s the quick synopsis: The brothers rob a bank in Texas and are on their way south, being chased by Texas rangers, and eventually taking a former pastor and his family hostage. Soon they stop at a strip club, which they later learn to some of their detriment is run by vampires. Bloodshed ensues.

The entire 10-episode season will take place in one night. Don Johnson (“Miami Vice”), Robert Patrick (“Terminator 2: Judgment Day”), Vilmer Valderrama (“That ‘70s Show”), and Adrianne Palicki (“Friday Night Lights”) also star.

The series is an El Rey Network production in association with Rodriguez International Pictures, FactoryMade Ventures, and Miramax. Executive producers include Robert Rodriguez, Carlos Coto (who serves as showrunner), and FactoryMade Ventures and El Rey co-founders John Fogelman and Cristina Pieto. Writer Diego Gutierrez also co-executive produces. Rodriguez directed four of the 10 episodes.

“From Dusk Till Dawn” will premiere in the US on March 11 at 9pm ET.
