"Matador" (TV show) is an action drama series on El Rey Network.

This irreverent, adrenaline-filled series chronicles the unlikely rise of Tony "Matador" Bravo, a professional soccer player for the LA Riot who comes to be known as much for his antics off the field as his moves on it. But what his fans and family don't realize is that it's all a cover — in truth, he is a skilled covert operative executing missions for the CIA. Agent Bravo, nicknamed "Matador" after he takes out a top player known as "The Bull" during tryouts for the team, finds himself suddenly thrust into a clandestine world. But, in balancing his dueling roles, he will be forced to confront the question of his true identity ... and it is this mission which may prove to be his most dangerous.

The international cast of "Matador" includes Gabriel Luna ("NCIS: Los Angeles," "Prison Break") in the title role of Tony "Matador" Bravo; Alfred Molina ("The Da Vinci Code," "Spider Man 2") as Andrés Galan, the billionaire owner of the ascendant LA Riot franchise and a member of an elite group of powerful global players, ruthless individuals who can impact world events on a scale that one would never imagine; Nicky Whelan ("Left Behind," "Chosen," "The Wedding Ringer") as Annie Mason, Tony's analytical and beautiful control agent who serves as the head of a little known branch of the CIA; Neil Hopkins ("Bones," "True Blood") as Noah Peacott, Annie's brilliant but awkward partner; and Tanc Sade ("Gilmore Girls," "90210") as Alec Holester, an English striker for the LA Riot who is past his prime, but still very skilled.

"Matador" is created by Roberto Orci, Dan Dworkin, Jay Beattie and Andrew Orci. Executive producers are Dworkin & Beattie, also showrunners, alongside executive producers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman and consulting producer Andrew Orci. Also joining as executive producers are Heather Kadin of K/O Paper Products; El Rey Network co-founder Robert Rodriguez; and FactoryMade Ventures and El Rey Network co-founders John Fogelman and Cristina Patwa.
