The latest series in the unlikely subgenre is "Midnight Sun", which is being developed for NBC. The series follows the mysterious disappearance of Midnight Sun, a group living on a cult-like commune in Alaska, and the female FBI cult specialist leading the investigation who uncovers a larger conspiracy.
Thanks to its chilly setting and its potential for supernatural conspiracies, "Midnight Sun" is drawing comparisons to "Twin Peaks" and "Lost". Will this one be as fascinating/frustrating as those two?
Speaking of "Lost", that show's villainous Man in Black - Titus Welliver (pictured above right) - is the first to join "Midnight Sun." Welliver will play Bennett Maxwell, the charismatic and manipulative leader of the missing cult in question.
