Charlaine Harris might best be know for her Sookie Steakhouse books about a telepathic waitress who gets wrapped up with vampires, and werewolves. The books were adapted into a TV show called True Blood which aired on HBO and lasted 5 seasons. Harris has also written lots of other book series too, and she decided to pull aspects or characters from all of her series together in Midnight, Texas. Now Midnight, Texas might also see the small screen. Although not on HBO, Midnight, Texas is still being called a True Blood. Here’s the trailer that as released back in October:
I loved the Midnight, Texas books but this looks like a really bad take on it in my opinion. Manfred, the main character, is supposed to be covered in tattoos and piercings with bleach-blonde hair. He's supposed to be drawn-in and bad with people. It just seems to have strayed too far afield of the source material both in casting and in interpretation. I don't know. Maybe. I am just not optimistic.
