NBC Orders ‘Midnight, Texas’ Pilot
We’re one step closer to having another Charlaine Harris series on our screens! Deadline reports that NBC has ordered a pilot based on Charlaine’s latest novels, the Midnight, Texas mystery series. As we reported in October, the network began developing the project last fall with an eye toward a Fall 2016 premiere.
Now that NBC has ordered a pilot, Midnight, Texas will begin casting and pre-production. Pilots usually film in March & April with pickups (when networks order series based on pilots) announced in May. Stay tuned!
From our review of Midnight Crossing:
Midnight is a speck on the map of Texas, a crossroads, with a handful of businesses, a smattering of houses, and a collection of residents who look out for each other and don’t ask too many questions.
When pawn shop owner Bobo Winthrop’s girlfriend turns up dead, suspicion points a finger at a few possible murderers, and secrets are revealed as the townsfolk attempt to unmask the killer. (I want to make a vague reference to whodunit and/or why they did it, but instead I’ll just say that Charlaine kept me guessing.)
