There's a town in Texas that really likes to keep things weird. And we're not talking 'about Austin.
Check out the newly-released trailer for "Midnight, Texas," NBC's new supernatural series about a small, remote Texan town that has become a haven for vampires, sorceresses, spirits, shapeshifters and other supernatural beings.
Based on the best-selling supernatural mystery novel series by "True Blood" author Charlaine Harris, the NBC drama stars French-Canadian actor Francois Arnaud (from Showtime's "The Borgias" and NBC's "Blindspot") as Manfred Bernardo, a psychic nomad with an exceptional ability to see and communicate with dead people. While running from his past, Manfred finds himself driving to the strange town where he becomes the newest member of a close-knit community of outsiders.
In addition to Arnaud, the cast also includes Peter Mensah (300), Arielle Kebbel (HBO's Ballers), Sarah Ramos (Parenthood), Parisa Fitz-Henley (Jessica Jones), Kellee Stewart (My Boys), Jason Lewis (Brothers & Sisters), Dylan Bruce (Orphan Black), and Yul Vazquez (Bloodline).
The hour-long pilot is directed by Niels Arden Oplev, the acclaimed Danish director who helmed the original 2009 Swedish version of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and the first episode of the hit hacker series "Mr. Robot."
"Midnight, Texas" is currently scheduled to premiere this summer, beginning Tuesday, July 25th on NBC.
Welcome to a place where being normal is really quite strange. From the visionary director of "Mr. Robot" and based on the hit book series from the author behind HBO's "True Blood" comes a journey into 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.
