Midnight Texas Season Two

April 2018

NBC has given a second-season renewal to supernatural drama Midnight, Texas. Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder, who served as consulting producers on Season 1, have been named executive producers and showrunners.


Additionally, two cast members from Season 1 — Sarah Ramos and Yul Vazquez — will not be coming back as series regulars. Midnight, Texas, starring François Arnaud, is based on the books by author Charlaine Harris, who already has one hit supernatural drama series based on her novels to her credit — HBO’s True Blood. Midnight Texas ranked as the No. 1 broadcast drama series last summer in adults 18-49 years old.


Midnight, Texas takes a journey into a remote Texas town where nothing is what it seems. In Midnight, Texas, being normal is strange and only outsiders fit in. It’s a mysterious safe haven for those who are different — a perfect place for anyone looking to hide from the outside world. The cast includes Arnaud, Dylan Bruce, Parisa Fitz-Henley, Arielle Kebbel, Jason Lewis and Peter Mensah. Charmelo and Nicole Snyder will executive produce with Janollari.

Jacob Groth has signed his catalogue to Edition Wilhelm Hansen / Music Sales Creative

June 2017

It is with great pleasure that Edition Wilhelm Hansen and Music Sales Creative can follow up on last year’s news that Jacob Groth was signed as a composer to Edition Wilhelm Hansen / Music Sales Creative. We can now proudly announce that Jacobs agreement with the EWH / MS has been expanded and includes not only the music composing at present and in the future but also the impressive array of award winning works that Jacob Groth has already composed. Music for movies such as The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Kapgang and TV shows such as KrønikenØrnenRejseholdet and more recently the Swedish TV Series Modus , the US NBC series Midnight, Texas and the Danish series Mercur . Jacob states: “I am ambitious and always strive for the best results. As an artist, I’m constantly looking for people who share my passion for creating music that supports and lifts the movies and TV shows that I am working on. Since my first meeting with Wilhelm Hansen, I have been convinced that this publisher would be the right partner for me” . He added, “It feels right that all my works are now gathered at a publishing house that is a significant part of Danish musical history – I am proud to be part of that family of wonderful composers that EWH and Music Sales represent”.

“On behalf of Edition Wilhelm Hansen, we are looking forward to the daily cooperation and the addition of the many titles from Jacob Groth’s catalog allows us to take an overview of the composer and reflect all the facets of his artistic work”, says director Loui Törnqvist.
