March 3 (UPI) -- Danny Trejo has signed on to host the upcoming, unscripted show Man at Arms, the El Rey Network announced.
The eight-part program based on the popular, digital series will premiere on the cable-television network in early June. The show will see Trejo "preside over the expert roundtable of builders, historians and martial artists and participate in the weapons-testing phase to see how much destruction they can cause," a press release explained.
"Who better to host a show celebrating iconic weapons in pop culture than 'Machete' himself, Danny Trejo?" El Rey Network president and G.M. Daniel Tibbets said in a statement. "Danny is a longtime friend of our founder, Robert Rodriguez and also of El Rey Network. He brings the right mix of mentorship, humor and knowledge to Man at Arms."
Trejo, 72, is known for his films Desperado, Heat, From Dusk Till Dawn, Con Air, Spy Kids, Machete, Machete Kills and Ridiculous 6.
