El Rey gives the show a second run...
The El Rey Network has announced that their spy thriller Matador has been renewed for a second season before it even premieres. The show, which comes from Roberto Orci, premieres on July 15th. The second season will run thirteen episodes.
Matador offers an irreverent, adrenaline-filled look at the unlikely rise of Tony "Matador" Bravo (Gabriel Luna), a professional soccer player for the LA Riot who comes to be known as much for his antics off the field as his 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 the CIA. Agent Bravo, nicknamed "Matador" after he takes out a top player known as "The Bull" during tryouts for the team, finds himself suddenly thrust into a clandestine world. But, in balancing his dueling roles, he will be forced to confront the question of his true identity... and it is this mission that may prove to be his most dangerous.
El Rey founder/chariman Robert Rodriguez said: "When Roberto first told me his concept for 'Matador,' I knew immediately that it had to have a home on El Rey. This show exceeded every possible expectation we had in terms of great storytelling, incredible action and unique characters."
