Welcome to a place where being normal is really quite strange…

Monica Owusu-Breen serves as writer and executive producer. David Janollari and director Niels Arden Oplev also executive produce. “Midnight, Texas” is produced by Universal Television and David Janollari Entertainment.
“Midnight, Texas” Episode 1.01 – “Pilot” (airs 7/24/17)
SERIES PREMIERE — Manfred Bernardo (François Arnaud), a powerful psychic on the run, decides to hide out in the small, sleepy town of Midnight, Texas. But when he’s haunted by the ghost of a recently murdered Midnighter, Manfred discovers this sleepy community is a mysterious safe haven for outsiders with secrets – both supernatural and human – including Lemuel (Peter Mensah), an energy-leeching vampire; Olivia (Arielle Kebbel), a beautiful assassin; Fiji (Parisa Fitz-Henley), a witch with a cranky cat; Creek (Sarah Ramos), a spunky writer with big dreams; Bobo (Dylan Bruce), a pawnshop owner with a hidden past; the Rev (Yul Vazquez), who has an obsession for animals; and Joe (Jason Lewis), an angelic tattoo artist.
In addition to the colorful residents, Manfred learns the town itself sits on a veil between the living and dead. He pledges to join the Midnighters in the fight to protect their home from suspicious cops and other outside forces.
