From Dusk Till Dawn — the TV Series?

FDTDOkay, ramblers, I didn’t see this coming: a TV series based on the 1996 George Clooney movie From Dusk Till Dawn, which was written by Quentin Tarantino and directed by Robert Rodriguez.

And, I have to say, it looks every bit as bad as the idea sounds.

Something called the El Ray Network will air the 10-part series, which reimagines the movie and stars Adrianne PalickiWilmer ValderramaD.J. CatronaZane HoltzJesse GarciaDon JohnsonRobert PatrickMadison DavenportBrandon Soo Hoo and Eiza Gonzalez as Santánico Pandemonium (the role made famous by Salma Hayek), beginning on March 11.

Take a look:


Here is the official synopsis, according to Geek Tyrant:

Based on the film of the same name, FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES is a supernatural crime saga centered around bank robber, Seth Gecko (Cotrona) and his violent, unpredictable brother, Richard “Richie” Gecko (Holtz), who are wanted by the FBI and Texas Rangers Earl McGraw (Johnson) and Freddie Gonzalez (Garcia) after a bank heist left several people dead. While on the run to Mexico, Seth and Richie encounter former minister Jacob Fuller (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 creatures inside the club.

Besides lacking Cheech Marin and Danny Trejo, how can this remake hope to even come close to this iconic scene from the original:
