While Robert Rodriguez’s TV adaptation of From Dusk Till Dawn will air on the El Rey Network in the U.S., the show will be available on Netflix internationally. The streaming service agreed to distribute it in foreign markets, where it will be branded A Netflix Original Series.
The 10-part drama will be available on March 12 for subscribers in the U.K., Ireland, the Nordic countries, The Netherlands and Canada, reports Deadline. Latin American subscribers will get to see it starting on March 19.
“We’re thrilled to premiere From Dusk Till Dawn: A Netflix Original Series exclusively in our international markets,” Netflix’s chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, said, notes Variety. “Robert Rodriguez is an amazing storyteller and we think our members will love his thrill-ride TV adaptation of the cult-classic.”
This is Rodriguez’s first television production. In addition to the original From Dusk Till Dawn film, he’s also responsible for Spy Kids, Sin City, Machete and the El mariachi films. He directed the From Dusk Till Dawn pilot and three other episodes. The pilot will be screened at SXSW. A trailer was released in January.
The cast includes D.J. Cotrona, Zane Holtz, Don Johnson, Jesse Garcia and Robert Patrick.
