Robert Rodriguez is partnering with Univision to start a television network. We’ve already heard about the proposed From Dusk Till Dawn television show that’s in the works and now we’re getting more details on some more of the networks programming.
Deadline is reporting that Rodriquez is teaming up with Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman to produce a ‘Latino James Bond’ style show. Orci is scripting the pilot and Rodriquez is directing.
The current working synopsis is:
“a big-budget adventure drama that is Latino James Bond in tone, but with more of a levity than the recent Bond movies. It centers on a super-star soccer player and notorious playboy who doubles as a highly-skilled spy, carrying out covert missions for a special branch of the CIA”
I love Robert Rodriguez. I love spy stuff. This series, of reportedly 13 episodes, sounds right up my alley. It also sounds like a more grown up version of Rodriquez’s Spy Kids series, which I’m completely ok with. Here’s hoping that this series is half as successful.
