Former WWE Diva Eve Torres has joined the cast of a new spy/thriller TV series titled “Matador” that will air on the El Rey Network, according to the Hollywood Reporter:
“Matador chronicles the rise of Tony “Matador” Bravo (Gabriel Luna), a professional soccer player for the L.A. 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 it’s all a cover — he’s a covert operative going on missions for the CIA.”
Torres will play the recurring character Reyna Flores, a sideline journalist who reports on Tony’s rise to fame. “Sharp, ambitious and fit, Reyna is a former college player herself who is passionate about the game as she is about her career.”
The show is scheduled to premiere July 15 on the upstart El Rey Network, which will also air a new wrestling show later this year centered on Mexico’s AAA wrestling promotion.
