Robert Rodriguez ‘From Dusk till Dawn’ TV Series Casting Call for Featured Roles in Austin, Texas

Project Casting

Casting directors are seeking extras to work on From Dusk Till Dawn filming in Austin Texas.

From Dusk Till Dawn is a new television series based on the 1996 film of the same name.
Screenrant recently reported on the upcoming new series.

From Dusk Till Dawn director Robert Rodriguez unveiled plans for the show this week, while also unveiling plans for an entire new cable network aimed at young-adult audiences called El Rey, which he has co-created, partnering with Univision Communications Inc. The English-language El Rey – which is set to premiere this December nation-wide with initial carriage via Comcast – would air From Dusk Till Dawn as its first scripted series.

Robert Rodriguez, is heavily involved in getting the network off the ground, will be writing, producing and directing the From Dusk Till Dawn series himself.

The series will expand on the story and characters from his original film and providing more Aztec mythology.

There has not been a report if the two sequels will be included in the television series since, Robert Rodriguez only worked as a producer on those projects.

 Still interested, see the following casting call information below for more details.
