NBC Picks Up Supernatural Drama ‘Midnight, Texas,’ Based on Books by ‘True Blood’ Author

NBC has picked up supernatural drama “Midnight, Texas,” based on the three-book series by “True Blood” author Charlaine Harris.

Written and executive produced by “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” alum Monica Owusu-Breen, “Midnight, Texas” centers around a remote Texas town where no one is who they seem. From vampires and witches to psychics and hit men, Midnight is a mysterious safe haven for those who are different. As the town members 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 will star François Arnaud, Dylan Bruce, Parisa Fitz-Henley, Arielle Kebbel, Sarah Ramos, Peter Mensah, Yul Vazquez and Sean Bridgers. David Janollari and pilot director Niels Arden Oplev also executive produce the series, which hails from Universal Television and David Janollari Entertainment.

NBC has already handed out series orders to Dan Fogelman dramedy “This Is Us,” starring Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia and Sterling K. Brown; DC Comics workplace comedy “Powerless”; legal comedy “Trial and Error”; and Dick Wolf’s latest “Chicago” spinoff, “Chicago Justice.” The network previously gave straight-to-series orders to sitcom “The Good Place,” starring Kristen Bell and Ted Danson, plus dramas “Taken,” a prequel series to the Liam Neeson film franchise, and “Emerald City,” a darker twist on the stories of Oz.
