Filmed on location in Albuquerque, New Mexico and other locations including the Castañeda Hotel, Las Vegas and Rio Roca Fria Hotel, Midnight, Texas is a cross between True Blood and Twilight.
Midnight is actually a town where those who are a little “different” can live safely, away from the outsiders who would normally give them trouble. And you know what they say about “safety in numbers.”
Manfred Bernardo is a psychic and gypsy fortune teller. He’s played by François Arnaud (you’ll probably recognize him from Blindspot and The Borgias) and is on the run from a voice on his phone and is led to Midnight, Tex. by his grandmother (a ghost who lives in his caravan RV). He’s not there long when there’s a murder and being a powerful psychic, the victim, visits him in his rented house.
The special effects are being handled by some of the best special and visual effects people in the business. They grab you and pull you in within the first three minutes of the show and won’t disappointment you during the next 48 minutes. Don’t miss the last twelve minutes if you really want to know what the residents of Midnight, Texas are all about.
The stories of the next ten episodes are in the capable hands of eight great writers including Charlaine Harris, who also penned the True Blood books and the book series, Midnight, Texas is based on.
Other cast members include Dylan Bruce, Parisa Fitz-Henley, Arielle Kebbel, and Peter Mensah, who played Kibwe in True Blood.
