And premiering July 25 at 10pm, “Midnight, Texas” centers on Manfred, a charming, powerful psychic who can communicate with spirits and finds safety in Midnight surrounding himself with both human and supernatural allies. Midnight is also home to Bobo, proprietor of Midnight’s local pawn shop; Fiji, a witch who owns the local wiccan shop; Olivia, a mysterious assassin with a weapon for every occasion; Joe, an angel who knows all of Midnight’s secrets having been around for millennia; Lemuel, a wise vampire with a long history in Midnight; Creek, an aspiring writer with big dreams; and Rev. Emilio Sheehan, who can’t resist the pull of a full moon.
Of note, given this blog’s stated interests, Fiji, the witch who owns the local wiccan shop is played by Parisa Fitz-Henley (“Luke Cage”); and Lemuel, the wise vampire with a long history in Midnight is played by Peter Mensah (“True Blood”).
