NBC has dropped the new trailer for Midnight, Texas, the new series from True Blood author Charlaine Harris. And by the looks of things, the inescapable ‘True Blood in Texas’ tag doesn’t seem too far off.
The show, which is based on Harris’ best-seller, stars François Arnaud (Rabid Dogs, TV’s The Borgias) as Manfred, a charming, powerful psychic who can communicate with spirits. Seeking sanctuary in the town of Midnight, he surrounds himself with both human and supernatural allies.
Also starring are Arrow’s Dylan Bruce as Bobo, the proprietor of Midnight’s local pawn shop; Luke Cage’s Parisa Fitz-Henley as Fiji, a witch who owns the local wiccan shop; Arielle Kebbel (The Vampire Diaries) as mysterious, heavily-armed assassin Olivia; Jason Lewis (Mr. Brooks, The Jacket) as Joe, an angel who knows all of Midnight’s secrets having been around for millennia; True Blood’s Peter Mensah as Lemuel, a wise vampire with a long history in Midnight; Sarah Ramos (TV’s Parenthood) as aspiring writer Creek; and Yul Vazquez (American Gangster) as Rev. Emilio Sheehan, who gets more than a little excitable on the night of a full moon.
Midnight, Texas premieres on NBC on Tuesday, July 25.
