Robert Rodriguez's cult film From Dusk Till Dawn is to be adapted for a TV show. Quentin Tarantino wrote the screenplay for the 1996 movie and starred alongside George Clooney as criminals who stumble across a nightclub filled with vampires. Miami Vice star Don Johnson is set to take the lead in the TV adaptation as Sheriff Earl McGraw, with G.I. Joe: Retaliation actor D.J. Cotrona and Zane Holtz taking the roles played by Clooney and Tarantino respectively. Rodriguez will serve as executive producer for the 10-episode series and will direct its first two installments. The director says, "If the movie's the short story, the series is the novel. We have assembled an amazing cast and crew, and viewers can expect to be part of a wild ride when the series premieres on El Rey Network." The El Rey Network is an English-language cable channel started by Rodriguez and due to launch in December (13). The programme is due to premiere in the U.S. next spring (14).
