- El Rey Network has released the trailer and four photos for their new action series Matador. The series debuts on July 15 at 9 PM ET/PT.
Here's a synopsis: "Matador" chronicles the unlikely rise of Tony "Matador" Bravo (Gabriel Luna), 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 what his fans and family don't realize is that it's all a cover-in truth, he is a skilled covert operative executing missions for a little-known branch of the CIA. "Matador" has the kind of fame and notoriety that affords him access to powerful circles of corruption and villainy. But, in balancing the dueling roles in which he's been cast, he will be forced to confront the question of his true identity... and it is this mission which will prove to be his most dangerous.
The series also stars Alfred Molina, Nicky Whelan, Neil Hopkins, Tanc Sade, Yvette Monreal, Elizabeth Peña, Julio Oscar Mechoso, Louis Ozawa Changchien, Sammi Rotibi, Jonny Cruz, Isabella Gomez and Peter Gadiot. It was created by Roberto Orci, Dan Dworkin, Jay Beattie and Andrew Orci. Executive producers are Dworkin and Beattie (who are showrunners). Other executive producers include Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman along with consulting producer Andrew Orci. It will also be executive produced by Heather Kadin of K/O Paper Products; El Rey Network co-founder Robert Rodriguez; and FactoryMade Ventures and El Rey Network co-founders John Fogelman and Cristina Patwa.
