Comments Off on El Rey Renews MATADOR

MATADOR, the new spy thriller from Roberto Orci, has been picked up for a second season, El Rey Network announced during its Television Critics Association press tour session.

The series — which bows on July 15th — follows Tony “Matador” Bravo, a CIA officer whose cover involves him  masquerading as a professional soccer player.

“When Roberto first told me his concept for MATADOR, I knew immediately that it had to have a home on El Rey,” Robert Rodriguez, El Rey Network’s Founder and Chairman, said in a statement. “This show exceeded every possible expectation we had in terms of great storytelling, incredible action and unique characters.”

“Working with Robert and El Rey has been such a unique experience,” Orci added. “We’ve been given enormous creative freedom and have delivered the show exactly as we envisioned. We have so much story left to tell and thank El Rey and Robert for their unending support for a show that celebrates a new kind of hero on television.”

MATADOR officially debuts on El Rey Network on Tuesday, July 15th at 9 PM.
