First official still of Santanico Pandemonium in From Dusk Till Dawn the series

January 26th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Earlier this month, the El Rey Network debuted the first pic of D.J. Cotrona and Zane Holtz as the Gecko Brothers in From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, which was revealed to debut on Tuesday, March 11th. The network has now released two new photos, one of which gives us our first official look at Eiza Gonzalez as Santanico Pandemonium, a role originally portrayed by Salma Hayek in the 1996 feature From Dusk Till Dawn. The other is another look at Cotrona and Holtz as the Geckos.

Based on the thrill-ride film, From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series is a supernatural crime saga centered around bank robber, Seth Gecko (D.J. Cotrona) and his violent, unpredictable brother, Richard “Richie” Gecko (Zane Holtz), who are wanted by the FBI and Texas Rangers Earl McGraw (Don Johnson) and Freddie Gonzalez (Jesse Garcia) after a bank heist leaves several people dead. While on the run to Mexico, Seth and Richie encounter former pastor Jacob Fuller (Robert Patrick) and his family, whom they take hostage.  Using the family RV to cross the border, chaos ensues when the group detours to a strip club that is populated by vampires.  They are forced to fight until dawn in order to get out alive. The series deepens the tone of the film, adds new characters and backstories and expands the Mesoamerican mythology behind the vampires.

Make-up effects are being overseen by The Walking Dead‘s Greg Nicotero.

From Dusk Till Dawn premieres March 11th on El Rey.

The teaser trailer is below in case you missed it.
