NBC/Universal’s new supernatural series Midnight, Texas, an adaption of Charlaine Harris’ novels by the same name, will be premiering later this month. Today, we have a sneak peek to share with you.
While it looks normal from the outside, Midnight is a mysterious safe haven for those who are different. As the town’s residents fight off outside pressures from rowdy biker gangs, ever-suspicious cops, and their own dangerous pasts, they band together and form a strong and unlikely family.
The series stars François Arnaud (“The Borgias”) as Manfred, a charming, powerful psychic on the run who can communicate with spirits and finds safety in Midnight surrounding himself with both human and supernatural allies. Midnight is also home to Bobo, proprietor of the local pawn shop (Dylan Bruce, “Orphan Black”); Fiji, a witch who owns the local wiccan shop (Parisa Fitz-Henley, “Luke Cage”); Olivia, a mysterious assassin with a weapon for every occasion (Arielle Kebbel, “The Vampire Diaries”); Joe, an angel who knows all of Midnight’s secrets, having been around for millennia (Jason Lewis, “Sex and the City”); Lemuel, a wise vampire with a long history in Midnight (Peter Mensah, “True Blood”); Creek, an aspiring writer with big dreams (Sarah Ramos, “Parenthood”); and Rev. Emilio Sheehan, who can’t resist the pull of a full moon (Yul Vazquez, Captain Phillips). Keep your eye out for Friday the 13th actor Derek Mears who will be making a cameo in at least one episode.
Monica Owusu-Breen (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) serves as writer and executive producer. David Janollari (Six Feet Under). and director Niels Arden Oplev also executive produce. Midnight, Texas is produced by Universal Television and David Janollari Entertainment.
