New Mexico Film Office Director Nick Maniatis announced today that the NBC television series, “Midnight, Texas,” produced by Universal Television and David Janollari Entertainment is filming in October through February 2017 in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Bernalillo and Belen.

The production will employ over 450 New Mexico crew members and approximately 1,800 New Mexico background talent.

Based on the New York Times best-selling book series by Charlaine Harris (author of the novels that inspired “True Blood”), comes a journey into a remote Texas town where being normal is really quite strange and only outsiders fit in. Home to a vampire, witch, angel and hit woman, Midnight, Texas 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 ensemble cast series stars Parisa Fitz-Henley, Peter Mensah, Francois Arnaud, Dylan Bruce, Arielle Kebbel, Jason Lewis, Sarah Ramos and Yul Vazquez.

Monica Owusu-Breen (“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”) and David Janollari (“Six Feet Under”) serve as executive producers.
