By | January 12, 2014

Vampire TV Series “Dusk Till Dawn”

Robert Rodriguez cult classic vampire film, “From Dusk Till Dawn” is now being re-made into a TV series about a cult of vampires South of the border.

Robert Rodriguez is directing and writing the new show and the series is scheduled to premiere on his new television Network, El Rey. This will be the first scripted series for the new network.

The original movie had a great cast which included George Clooney, Quentin Tarantino, Harvey Keitel, Tito & Tarantula, Juliette Lewis, Salma Hayek, Cheech Marin, Tom Savini, Fred Williamson and Danny Trejo. The new series is rumored to be bringing back some of the old characters including Santánico Pandemonium (originally played by Selma Hayak) who will now be played by Eiza Gonzalez.

The TV show, “Dusk Till Dawn” is currently filming in the Austin Texas area and casting directors at Beth Speko casting are looking for Latino extras who can play kids or elders. They are specifically looking for extras that live in the Austin TX area and are ages 6 to 10 or are 60 to 80.  This is a paid job. Pay rate will be on an hourly basis between $60 to $80 for the day, depending on hours worked. No travel expenses will be covered.
