The town of Midnight sits on a veil between the living and hell.
The supernatural thriller, which is based on the best-selling book series by Charlaine Harris (author of the novels that inspired “True Blood”), takes a journey into a remote Texas town where nothing is what it seems. In Midnight, Texas, being normal is strange and only outsiders fit in. It’s a mysterious safe haven for those who are different — a perfect place for anyone looking to hide from the outside world.
“Midnight, Texas” stars François Arnaud (“The Borgias”) as Manfred, a charming, powerful psychic who can communicate with spirits and finds safety in Midnight surrounding himself with both human and supernatural allies. Midnight is also home to Bobo (Dylan Bruce, “Orphan Black”), proprietor of Midnight’s local pawn shop; Fiji (Parisa Fitz-Henley, “Luke Cage”), a witch who owns the local wiccan shop; Olivia (Arielle Kebbel, “Ballers”), a mysterious assassin with a weapon for every occasion; Joe (Jason Lewis, “Sex and the City”), an angel who knows all of Midnight’s secrets having been around for millennia; Lemuel (Peter Mensah, “True Blood”), a wise vampire with a long history in Midnight.
As the town members fight off outside pressures from ever-suspicious cops, deadly biker gangs, and their own dangerous pasts, they band together and form an unlikely but strong family. “Midnight, Texas” is based on the best-selling book series by Charlaine Harris (author of the novels that inspired “True Blood”) and executive produced by Eric Charmelo (“Supernatural”), Nicole Snyder (“Supernatural”) and David Janollari (“Six Feet Under”), and produced by Universal Television and David Janollari Entertainment.
