Midnight, Texas TV Series

True Blood Author Charlaine Harris Bringing Midnight, Texas to NBC

NBC is sinking its teeth into a potential new series based on True Blood author Charlaine Harris’ three-book series Midnight, Texas, TVLine has confirmed.

The logline for the project, which a Peacock rep says is in the “development” stage, is as follows: “Set in Midnight, Texas, the real world and the supernatural collide in a dangerous, sexy, place full of dark secrets and mysterious people. It’s a small town where asking the wrong question or overstaying your welcome could get you killed. Stop at the one traffic light in town and everything looks normal; stay a while and learn the truth.”

The first book in the series, Midnight Crossroad, was released in 2014. The follow-up, Day Shift, arrived in May. The third, Night Shift, is due in 2016.

EW.com first reported the news.

Fringe alum Monica Owusu-Breenis will pen the pilot and serve as an EP alongside David Janollari.
