NBC has ordered MIDNIGHT TEXAS to series, executive produced by Niels Arden Oplev, the director of MR. ROBOT.

The show, based on the book series from Charlaine Harris (TRUE BLOOD), features all manner of strange creatures in a remote Texas town, including vampires, witches, psychics and hit men. “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.” The cast includes François Arnaud, Dylan Bruce, Parisa Fitz-Henley, Arielle Kebbel, Sarah Ramos, Peter Mensah, Yul Vazquez and Sean Bridgers.

In addition, the network has cancelled the Carrie Preston and Patrick Warburton comedy CROWDED, which premiered at midseason. And drama HEARTBEAT, starring Melissa George, has also been given the axe.
