Kai (Carbonell) is a magnetic, holistic energy healer and Patience (Newman) is his savvy and beautiful wife. Drawn to Midnight’s unique energy, they have opened Crystal Desert, a hotel and New Age healing center. Though Kai impresses the Midnighters with his power, some are skeptical of his motives and wonders if he is actually a con man. Patience uses her charm to ingratiate herself to Midnight and takes an immediate liking to Manfred (Arnaud).
Walker (Kelly) is a handsome, openly gay demon hunter, much like Joe Strong, the famed angel he admires. When Walker discovers Joe in Midnight, the two develop a bond fighting demons. Driven by revenge and an undeniably intense attraction to one another, Walker will get Joe into more trouble than either expect.
Midnight, Texas is executive produced by Eric Charmelo (Supernatural), Nicole Snyder (Supernatural) and David Janollari (Six Feet Under), and produced by Universal Television and David Janollari Entertainment.
Carbonell is represented by APA and Thruline; Newman is with ICM Partners and The Burstein Company; Kelly is with Abrams Artists Agency and The Rosenzweig Group.
