Robert Rodriguez's 'El Rey' network to debut Lancaster-based barber series

Since From Dusk Til Dawn director Robert Rodriguez launched his El Rey network late last year, he's been promising original programming ranging from Mexican wrestling to biopics of major soccer stars. Now, oddly enough, we can add Lancaster barbers to the list of topics with Cutting Crew, which recently started production.

Since From Dusk Til Dawn director Robert Rodriguez launched his El Rey network late last year, he’s been promising original programming ranging from Mexican wrestling to biopics of major soccer stars. Now, oddly enough, we can add Lancaster barbers to the list of topics with Cutting Crew, which recently started production.

Set to premiere this fall, Cutting Crew centers on award-winning barber Amit Corso and his staff as they “execute cutting-edge cuts while finding plenty of time to bicker,” according to Deadline. Basically, think American Chopper with hair. 

Cutting Crew will serve as El Rey’s first original unscripted series, with the promised Dusk Till Dawn series serving as the first original scripted effort. Among the show’s highlights, we’ll get to see the crew “shaving back hair into the shape of a Batman emblem.” So, you know, tune in.

If superhero logo-shaped body hair doesn’t grab you, though, there’s always syndicated reruns of X-Files
