Robert Rodriguez’s El Rey network has released a trailer for their original series Matador.
Matador follows the unlikely rise of Antonio “Matador” Bravo, a popular soccer star, who comes to be known as much for his playboy antics off the field as his dynamic moves on it. But he is in fact a skilled covert operative executing missions for a little known branch of the CIA.
The cast includes Gabriel Luna (Prison Break) Alfred Molina (Monday Mornings), Nicky Whelan (The Wedding Ringer), Neil Hopkins (Bones), Tanc Sade (90210), Yvette Monreal (Off The Grid), Elizabeth Peña (Modern Family), Julio Oscar Mechoso (Little Miss Sunshine), Louis Ozawa Changchien (The Bourne Legacy), Sammi Rotibi (Lord of Ward), Jonny Cruz (Cool Wheels), Isabella Gomez and Peter Gadiot (Once Upon a Time in Wonderland).
The drama series hails from Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman and is produced by their K/O Productions banner. Matador marks the second original scripted series for El Rey, who entered the space earlier this year with From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series. Entertainment One (eOne) is handling international distribution for Matador.
