Parenthood alumna Sarah Ramos is returning to NBC as one of the leads in another drama series project, pilot Midnight, Texas, which is based on the bestselling trilogy by Charlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Stackhouse books that were adapted into HBO’s vampire drama True Blood.
Written by Monica Owusu-Breen and directed by Niels Arden Oplev, Midnight, Texas is described as Twin Peaks meets True Blood in Midnight, Texas, a remote town where your neighbor could be a vampire, a witch, a werewolf, or even an angel. Mystery, horror and romance combine to both enthrall and frighten any outsiders who decide to venture into this unusual place.
Ramos will play Creek, a girl next door beauty who works two jobs – a waitress at the local restaurant and working the counter at the Gas and Go convenience store her dad owns. She is bright, funny and dreams of more but lives at home to protect her teen brother from their oppressively strict and protective father.
Owusu-Breen, Oplev and David Janollari executive produce for Universal TV.
American Dreams alumna Ramos, repped by Gersh and Anonymous Content, played Haddie Braverman on NBC/Uni TV’s family drama Parenthood, starting off as a regular for the first three seasons.
