François visited the set of Extra yesterday for an interview and discussed Midnight, Texas. Check out photos in our gallery! I will update this post once the full interview is out.
Manfred (François Arnaud) tries to help one of his new neighbors, Bobo (Dylan Bruce), clear his name by talking to the murdered victim with the help of Joe (Jason Lewis). As Manfred helps his neighbors and grows closer to Creek (Sarah Ramos), they help him – specifically, Fiji (Parisa Fitz-Henley), the resident witch who performs an exorcism to rid Manfred’s home of the spirits, demonic and otherwise that haunt it. Meanwhile, the Rev (Yul Vazquez) tries to stay out of trouble while Lem (Peter Mensah) and Olivia (Arielle Kebbel) set out to stop a deadly predator before it kills again.
Great news, guys! Midnight, Texas had a great start ratings-wise. It has been labeled as the highest-rated drama series premiere this summer. Congratulations to the entire cast and crew!
DEADLINE – NBC made a seamless transition in the Monday 10 PM slot, with new supernatural drama Midnight, Texas drawing a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating and 3.6 million viewers for its premiere, on par with the Season 2 debut (and Season 2 average) in the hour for the unscripted Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge earlier this summer.
Midnight, Texas easily topped the 10 PM preview of new ABC drama Somewhere Between, which debuted to a lackluster 0.6 in the demo and 3.07 million viewers, just a tenth higher in 18-49 than the premiere of the short-lived Still Star-Crossed in the time period earlier this summer.
In Live+same day adults 18-49, Midnight, Texas ranks as the highest rated drama series premiere — new or returning — this summer and ties NBC’s recently canceled The Carmichael Show as the highest rated scripted summer series opener this summer.
New project alert! Deadline has reported that François has joined the cast of Marc Carlini’s indie film, She’s in Portland. Exciting!
It follows two thirtysomething guys who, after a college reunion, decide to take a road trip up the California coast to find Maggie, the one that got away. Dewey plays Wes, a charismatic East Coast banker grappling with a stressful home life and a marriage that’s gone cold. Arnaud is Luke, a Los Angeles creative struggling with his career and life as a lonely single guy.
The cast of Midnight, Texas was at the San Diego Comic-Con once again, this time to do press and a panel at the convention. I have added high-quality photos into the gallery! I’m hoping the video of the full panel will be out soon, but check out the interview they did for Entertainment Weekly. I will update this post once the full panel is released.
The cast of Midnight, Texas was at the second day of this year’s San Diego Comic-Con for the show’s experience set up at the convention. Also, the cast had a book signing at the convention and was joined by Charlaine Harris, the author of the Midnight trilogy. Check out high-quality photos in our gallery, including two gorgeous portraits of François and Sarah taken at the event.
