In speaking with SFX Magazine, Rodriguez mentioned how the From Dusk till Dawn TV series came about before revealing the upcoming animated series.
“Over here, I have my own television network [El Rey]. So I had a television network here. And I needed to create programming, so Quentin [Tarantino] and I still control the rights to it.
