‘Matador’

“Where fans, aficionados and rebels come for their fix of bullets, blood and babes.” That’s the description of the new El Rey network and this new series — from executive producer Robert Rodriguez (“From Dusk Till Dawn” and “Sin City”) — fits that bill. It tells the story of DEA agent Tony Bravo (Gabriel Luna) who is recruited to go undercover as a player on the LA Riot soccer team. It’s a pretty mixed affair — half sports drama, half spy thriller — but features a fun performance from Alfred Molina as the owner of the team. 9 p.m. Tuesday, July 29, on El Rey (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
