EWAN MCGREGOR IS JESUS & THE DEVIL IN 'LAST DAYS IN THE DESERT' TRAILER! FRANCOIS ARNAUD TO LEAD 'MIDNIGHT, TEXAS' SPOOKY FANTASY TV SERIES

 FRANCOIS ARNAUD TO LEAD
'MIDNIGHT, TEXAS' TV SERIES 
In todays's TV news BORGIAS star Francois Arnaud is returning to the small screens with the lead role in MIDNIGHT, TEXAS series based on Charlaine Harris novels set in a remote town where your neighbour could be a vampire, a witch, a werewolf, or even an angel.

FREAK TOWN  
The show centres on travelling psychic Manfred Bernardo (Francois Arnaud) who, having grown tired of life on the road, takes the advice of his dead grandmother and decides to settle in the small Texas town of Midnight. Perfectly content with going about his business letting others think he’s a hack, Manfred soon realizes that he has much more in common with the locals than he originally thought. It would seem that he’s found more evil than he left, so he’ll have to bond with his supernatural neighbours to figure out what’s going on. The cast also includes Arielle Kebbel, Dylan Bruce and Sarah Ramos.

 'LAST DAYS IN THE DESERT

  1. "Last days in the Desert" if Jesus was dead he'd be turning over in his tomb!

  4. Midnight, Texas sounds interesting. A supernatural series centered around a psychic sounds fun.

  7. Ewan as Jesus? Okaaayyyy... Usually, when I picture Jesus, a white man does not come to mind.

  9. I'm looking forward to "Last Days in the Desert" so much! Looks like a movie of real depth and thought, not just "McJesus" as you said in the last comment -- what a great phrase! And of course, Ewan McGregor is a magnificent actor -- he's always a pleasure to watch.
