1/25/16: Good news for Charlaine Harris fans! NBC has given a pilot green light to Midnight Texas, which will be written and executive produced by Monica Owusu-Breen (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), and executive produced by David Janollari (Six Feet Under).
Midnight, Texas is Charlaine Harris’ exciting new series, which combines mystery, romance, and the supernatural. In their article “Five Reasons You Should Read Charlaine Harris’s MIDNIGHT CROSSROAD,” Barnes and Noble wrote, ““Charlaine Harris is an icon. She’s found success writing mysteries, gothic horror, and paranormal fantasy. But it’s MIDNIGHT CROSSROAD. . .that may very well be her best–and most important–work to date…This novel will not only appeal to genre fiction fans but mainstream fiction readers as well. The blend of fiction, mystery, and supernatural fantasy is subtle and seamless.”
Charlaine’s series have already inspired two television adaptations. Her Aurora Teagarden books have been made into two TV movies by Hallmark (with two more coming in 2016!), and her Sookie Stackhouse series inspired the hit HBO series True Blood.
