Exclusive: The Cisco Kid is riding back to TV. CBS has put in development The Cisco Kid, a drama series re-imagening the iconic Latino character that is executive produced by Salma Hayek (Ugly Betty) and Lauren Shuler Donner (X-Men). Written by Diego Gutierrez (The Shield), The Cisco Kid is described as a modern day re-retelling of the classic story of a handsome outlaw and his faithful sidekick in the vein of Lethal Weapon. It follows Cisco as he returns to Los Angeles after serving several tours as a Marine in Afghanistan. After witnessing the murder of his father, Cisco and his best friend/fellow Marine, Sam, team up to solve the case and subsequently find themselves doing what the authorities can’t — defending the city’s oppressed and disenfranchised. Executive producing alongside Gutierrez are Hayek and Jose Tamez through their Ventanarosa production company, as well as Donners’ Co.’s Donner and Jack Leslie. »
