Charlaine Harris, NY Times best-selling author who is known for her True Blood series, is having her novel ‘Midnight Texas’ adapted for TV.
Per THR,the forthcoming NBC series Midnight, Texas, set to premiere July 25, is an adaptation of the Harris trilogy of the same name.
As for how much involvement the author had with the series, executive producer Monica Owusu-Breen said she and the author talked often about how to best adapt the books for TV. “She came to set, but she understands the novel had a very small-town pace to it, which is different than what a network requires,” Owusu-Breen told reporters Monday at NBC’s summer press day. “It’s a little bit like her books on steroids.”
Described as Twin Peaks meets True Blood, the series is set in a remote town where your neighbor could be a vampire, a witch, a werewolf or even an angel. Mystery, horror and romance combine to both enthrall and frighten any outsiders who decide to venture into this unusual place.
