One of the most entertaining shows of the summer, Matador is a fast-paced spy series centered on Tony Bravo, a up & coming star in pro soccer – who happens to be an undercover agent for the CIA. The series features smart, fast-paced action, global conspiracies, heart-warming family moments and even a bit of soccer.
In this week’s episode, The Anguish of Rosarito, Tony’s cover may be at risk as a result of the events of the last two episodes – despite the best efforts of his handler, Annie Mason. Check out a teaser – and a new clip – following the jump. Matador airs on El Rey, Tuesdays (9/8C).
El Rey’s Matador (Tuesdays, 9/8C) is the second original scripted series for the network and catches the cachet of the World Cup, the idea of the 1% taking over the world, and good old espionage. It’s a bit like a current take of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. with a Hispanic Napoleon Solo. It’s smart, fun and knowing.
James Callis – best know for playing Dr. Gaius Baltar on Battlestar Galactica and the the benefactor of Eureka, Dr. Trevor Grant – has been signed to play Lucien Sayer on El Rey’s new espionage series, Matador. Sayer is ‘a mysterious figure who commands a fraternity of the world’s most elite businessmen, politicians and influencers.’
Matador is Tony ‘Matador’ Bravo, a former DEA agent who uses his cover as the newest star of soccer’s L.A. Riot to track down a secret cabal of the world’s wealthiest men – who believe they should be running the world. Matador is El Rey’s second original scripted series and premieres on Tuesday, July 15th (9/8C). For more, check out the press release after the jump.
