The series is based on the best-selling book series by Charlaine Harris (author of the novels that inspired “True Blood”). The story takes place in a remote Texas town where nothing is what it seems. Home to a vampire, witch, angel and hitwoman, Midnight is a mysterious safe haven for those who are different. That is, until the arrival of a powerful psychic and the murder of one of their own. 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.

The series is executive produced by Monica Owusu-Breen (“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Alias,” “Brothers & Sisters”) and David Janollari (“Six Feet Under,” “American Family”). The pilot episode was directed by Niels Arden Oplev (“Mr. Robot,” “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”).
