Account Executive, El Rey

  • 605 Third Avenue, New York, NY
  • Full-time

Company Description

El Rey Network is a new action and general entertainment TV and digital network founded and owned by legendary filmmaker Robert Rodriguez. The Network, taking its name from the iconic Mexican song EL REY and numerous references in Rodriguez' films, will be the first television and digital network in English that will be inspired by a contemporary US-Latino sensibility that will be broadly entertaining, dynamic and cool for all young and young-minded adults. 

While it will be primarily geared to the 2nd and 3rd generation Latinos who speak English first and define themselves as Mexican or Puerto Rican and the like, El Rey Network will create, produce and showcase content that has universal appeal and inclusive to everyone, as are all of Robert Rodriguez' films throughout his 20-year career. 

Whether animation, next generation sports, music, new original dramas or new indie films, El Rey's fresh perspective will fill a void on television and in digital media with stories and images that currently do not exist in entertainment today.
