Robert Rodriguez’s El Rey Network on Comcast is adding another feather to its cap. Last month, it was announced at the Univision upfronts that a From Dusk Till Dawn series would be available at launch along with a mysterious project from Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman.
Now, thanks to Deadline, we know more about the project. Described as featuring a Latino James Bond, the 13-episode series is written by Orci, with Rodriguez set to direct the pilot. It follows a super-spy character who also happens to be a world-class soccer player and playboy. The site says the new show will feature more humor than the current Bond films and has a hefty $40 million budget.
Rodriguez and Orci both have a lot of irons in the fire at the moment: Rodriguez is working on Machete Kills as well as Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, while Orci and his longtime writing partner Kurtzman are writing/producing the series Sleepy Hollow as well as films like Sagittarius A and a reboot of The Mummy.
