FIRST LOOKS

“Rebel Without A Crew,” a 12-part series following filmmakers as they attempt to shoot their own feature film, premieres on Sunday, Nov. 18 on El Rey Network. The series recreates the conditions in which Robert Rodriguez made his first feature length film, “El Mariachi,” 25 years ago with only a budget of $7,000 and 14 days to shoot.

DATES

Walberg will return to his role as host, which he held during the original series that premiered in 2001. The show follows four couples at a pivotal time in their relationship, when they must decide if they want to commit for the rest of their lives or go their separate ways. They travel to Maui, Hawaii, where they join 24 eligible men and women and put the single life to the test. 

CASTING
