El Rey - GVTV to produce 6 series for Robert Rodriguez's network

El Rey, the upcoming Comcast cable network from filmmaker Robert Rodriguez, John Fogelman and Cristina Patwa’s FactoryMade, is looking to make a splash with original scripted series.

Tres Pistoleros Studios, Rodriguez and FactoryMade’s production company, has signed a mega 3-year deal with Reliance's Georgeville Television that could be worth $250 million.

Under the pact, Georgeville, the independent TV studio formed by Marc Rosen, Motion Picture Capital's Leon Clarance and Deepak Nayar, will produce a minimum of six 13-episode series for the new network at budgets rumored to be at least $3 million an episode.

With the deal, El Rey hints at its future identity as a scripted player when it launches in January 2014. The English-language El Rey is targeting growing latino audience whose importance is on the rise : just this month, Spanish-language Univision posted its first #4 in-season sweep finish among adults 18-49, topping NBC.

Robert Rodriguez is behind films such as Desperado, From Dusk Till Dawn, Sin City, Planet Terror and Machete.

Georgeville Television is behind NBC's upcoming pirate drama series Crossbones.

It is also paying for several other projects in the works, including :

- Blake's 7 (remake of the British sci-fi series for Syfy).
- Z (a modern take on Zorro at USA).
- The After (a sci-fi thriller from The X-Files creator Chris Carter).
- Tomorrow (a time-travel procedural for ABC).
- Hunters (a pandemic thriller from Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski).
- Sense8 (a sci-fi drama from The Matrix creators Andy & Larry Wachowski).

Pretty cool projects, and now this one-year old company has a 6-series deal with this upcoming network, so given their good-looking track record, interesting new adventure/action/fantasy/sci-fi dramas could florecer on El Rey.

Here's Rodriguez talking about what he envisions for his cable network :
