Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez’ El Rey Network is now accepting content from indie creators for possible placement in their network lineup. Here’s an official statement from the net:
EL REY IS THE PEOPLE’S NETWORK
YOU CREATE, WE MAKE IT HAPPEN.
This is a place where makers have direct access to television audiences. Send us cool stuff, and if we like it we’ll put it on TV. Robert started his career with zero advantages – just the $7,000 he earned by selling his body to science. We welcome makers who share that spirit to become part of El Rey Network.
