Alfred Molina (The Da Vinci Code, Spider Man 2) stars as Andres Galan in the El Rey Network scripted original series “Matador” which premiered in July.
Created by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, and produced in association with K/O Paper Products, the coveted writing/producing team behind Sleepy Hollow, Fringe, Star Trek and the Transformer franchise, “Matador” features Molina as Andrew Galan, a man who built his fortune in the telecom industry, but his true passion is soccer.
As owner of the ascendant LA Riot franchise, he is celebrated in both the sports and business worlds. But there is another world that he operates in — as a member of an elite group of powerful global players, ruthless individuals who can effect world events on a scale that one would never imagine.
What Galan doesn’t know is that there is a mole in his midst. One of his new players, Tony Bravo, is actually an undercover operative, sent in to expose him and his cohorts. As Tony and Galan grow closer, the fate of their relationship may very well determine the fate of the world.
