Suddenly horror TV shows are all the rage thanks in part to shows like The Walking Dead, Supernatural and American Horror Story. Here we have another one to add to your slate, one that veers more on the thriller side of things.
According to Deadline, NBC’s pilot Midnight Sun has recently cast Titus Welliver (Sons of Anarchy) as the first actor to join the project. Welliver will play, “Bennett Maxwell, the charismatic and manipulative leader of Midnight Sun.”
The show itself is “based on an Israeli format, follows the mysterious disappearance of Midnight Sun, a group living on a cult-like commune in Alaska, and a female FBI cult specialist leading the investigation that uncovers a larger conspiracy.”
Not much else is known at this time but do stay tuned for more.
