NBC is developing a fantasy drama “Midnight, Texas” based on a three-book series by “True Blood” author Charlaine Harris.

The adaptation is shepherded for Universal Television by NBC-based producer David Janollari and penned by Monica Owusu-Breen. Both are exec producing.

“Midnight, Texas” revolves around a small town in the Lone Star state where the supernatural and real worlds collide in dangerous ways. The book series began with “Midnight Crossroad,” followed by “Day Shift” and will conclude with the publication in May of “Night Shift.”

“I’m looking forward to this new venture. Seeing my stories told in a different medium is always fascinating,” Harris said.

Harris’ Southern supernatural vampire series formed the basis of HBO’s “True Blood,” which ran for seven seasons from 2008-2014. Another Harris character, Aurora Teagarden, is being adapted into a telepic series for Hallmark Channel.
