Coming Distractions: NBC tries for its own True Blood in the Midnight, Texas trailer

Read on: The A.V. Club

Based on the trailer for Midnight, Texas ,it seems NBC is going to try to inject some supernatural ridiculousness into its summer programming. The series is adapted from books by Charlaine Harris of True Blood fame, and the footage promises a sexy monster mash with a bunch of hot people playing the residents of the titular locale. (According to Deadline, there is also a talking cat, who doesn’t make an appearance here, but will surely provoke Sabrina The Teenage Witch flashbacks.) The show centers around a psychic played by François Arnaud who arrives in town carrying with him the biggest mystery of all: How his hair gets so much volume. It truly defies reason. Midnight, Texas is set to premiere July 25.
