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.
This supernatural thriller takes a journey into a remote Texas town called Midnight where nothing is what it seems. Where being normal is strange and only outsiders fit in, Midnight is a mysterious safe haven for those who are different -- a perfect place for anyone looking to hide from the outside world. As the town members fight off outside pressures from ever-suspicious cops, deadly biker gangs, and their own dangerous pasts, they band together and form an unlikely but strong family. “Midnight, Texas” is based on the best-selling book series by Charlaine Harris (author of the novels that inspired “True Blood”).
