•"Midnight, Texas" (Saturday, Oct. 8, 4-5:15 p.m. in Room 1A-06 - sponsored by Universal Television): Based on the New York Times best-selling book series by Charlaine Harris (author of the novels that inspired "True Blood"), comes a journey into a remote Texas town where being normal is really quite strange and only outsiders fit in. Home to a vampire, witch, angel and hitwoman, Midnight, Texas, is a mysterious safe haven for those who are different. That is, until the arrival of a powerful psychic and the murder of one of their own. As the town members fight off outside pressures from ever-suspicious cops, deadly biker gangs, and their own dangerous pasts, they band together and form an unlikely but strong family.
