Don Johnson has joined the TV adaptation of Robert Rodriguez's cult film "From Dusk Till Dawn." The 1996 film was written by Quentin Tarantino, who starred alongside George Clooney as criminals who end up in a nightclub filled with vampires.
Johnson will play Sheriff Earl McGraw, while D.J. Cotrona and Zane Holtz will fill the roles originally played by Clooney and Tarantino.
The 10-episode series will air on the El Rey Network,an English-language cable channel set to launch next month.
Rodriguez will serve as executive producer and will also direct the first two installments. He explained: "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."
"From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series" is expected to premiere in spring 2014.
