NBC Orders 2 Pilots: Fantasy Drama From ‘True Blood’ Author, Legal Soap

“Midnight, Texas” and “Miranda’s Rights” both hail from Universal Television

NBC has ordered pilots for a Katie Lovejoy legal soap and a Monica Owusu-Breen fantasy drama.

The first project, “Miranda’s Rights” will follow an idealistic group of lawyers who not only work together but live together at their start-up firm. Take a guess at what the female protagonist character will probably be named.

That show, which counts John Glenn among its executive producers, hails from Universal Television and John Glenn Entertainment.

The second pilot, “Midnight, Texas,” is based on the New York Times best-selling trilogy from the author of the “True Blood.”

The supernatural story takes place in 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, the network promises.

David Janollari will executive produce through his David Janollari Entertainment. Universal Television gets top billing there too.

Owusu-Breen was recently a co-executive producer on “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD.” Before that, she earned the same credit writing on “Revolution” and “Fringe.”

Lovejoy has more of a newcomer’s resume, having penned an episode of “Dracula” in 2014.
