Sex and the City veteran, Jason Lewis, has been promoted to a series regular role on the Midnight Texas TV show, expected to premiere mid-season on NBC. The Midnight Texas TV series cast also includes: François Arnaud, Dylan Bruce, Parisa Fitz-Henley, Arielle Kebbel, Sarah Ramos, Peter Mensah, Yul Vazquez, and Sean Bridgers.
Midnight Texas is based the Charlaine Harris supernatural book series of the same name. This is not the first time the author’s work has been adapted for the small screen. She also wrote the fangtastic books that inspired the True Blood TV show which ran for seven seasons on HBO.
Deadline says, “Lewis plays Joe Strong, an easygoing tattoo artist with a strong moral compass who lives with his husband and their dog and has supernatural powers of an angel.”
Welcome to a place where being normal is really quite strange. From Niels Arden Oplev, the visionary director of “Mr. Robot,” and based on the hit book series from author Charlaine Harris (“True Blood”), comes a journey into a remote Texas town where no one is who they seem. From vampires and witches to psychics and hit men, Midnight is a mysterious safe haven for those who are different. As the town members fight off outside pressures from rowdy biker gangs, ever-suspicious cops and their own dangerous pasts, they band together and form a strong and unlikely family.
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.

I watched Midnight Texas from the first episode, and was floored! OMGosh this is such a good show. If there are any fans of horror, vampires, fallen angels, mediums, witches, or werelions — this is your show! I have told everyone about this show, and they all came back saying “WTH!!!!!”
I have read these books several times and I just love them! Can’t wait to see this series on NBC. I am looking forward to seeing how the books and the show will be the same or different. The books are excellent and I’m sure the show will be also!
I definitely plan to see this series and can’t wait for the time when it will be available on dvd for purchase. I have not read the books yet but I am going to. That Francois Arnaud is in this show is what caught my attention and made me want to see it. I’m interested (call it passionate) about anything he plays in.
OMG I saw this in a preview and was so excited. I read these books so long ago, and I loved them. can’t wait for this series.
Yes, I certainly plan on watching Midnight Tx. , it looks like a great supernatural series !
