WYO New Mexico Style: Longmire Teaser

Posted by on March 16, 2012 | Comments Off on WYO New Mexico Style: Longmire Teaser

The long awaited New Mexico production of A&E’s original series, Longmire will premiere June 3rd, 2012.

Though casting and principal photography are just getting underway here in NM, for the first full season the griping drama series, the show’s pilot is episode is ready to go.

Back in August, 2011 the Associated Press Reported:

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Absaroka County doesn’t exist on Wyoming maps, but it has its own county-24 license plate. Craig Johnson has a stack to prove it. One was affixed to each car in the A&E television pilot “Longmire,” and Johnson couldn’t resist taking a few home.

“If the TV show does get done, I’d really enjoy seeing characters from Wyoming who act as if they have IQs above room temperature,” Johnson recently told the Star-Tribune.

He’ll get that chance next summer.

In an email to his fans, Johnson announced Monday that A&E picked up a 10-episode season of “Longmire,” a TV series based on Johnson’s novels about Walt Longmire, sheriff of the least-populated county of the least-populated state.

The show will star Australian Robert Taylor (Agent Jones in “The Matrix”) as Walt and Portland native Katee Sackhoff (“Battlestar Galactica”) as foul-mouthed deputy Victoria Morretti. Lou Diamond Phillips and Cassidy Freeman (“Smallville”) will also star.

Johnson is the author of seven Walt Longmire mystery novels, beginning with “The Cold Dish” in 2004. Walt lives and works in the fictional Absaroka County, based on Johnson’s home territory of Ucross, population 25. Locals refer to the area as the UCLA of Wyoming — Ucross, Clearmont, Leiter and Arvada. It lies between Buffalo and Sheridan at the base of the Big Horn Mountains.

In a recent interview at his log cabin in Ucross, Johnson explained why he’s so excited about a show in which Wyoming characters are more than just plot devices. Watch one of those CSI cop dramas, and inevitably a case brings a big-city cop to some back-water Western town. One episode portrayed a Wyoming sheriff “like he was in some road show from Li’l Abner,” Johnson said.

“I mean, can you give us a little more credit than that?”

Besides the pilot, the deal calls for a full season of nine more episodes. Each will be shot in northern New Mexico, but Wyoming viewers may recognize some of the landmarks. Producers are interested in shooting some Wyoming landscapes and possibly bringing Walt’s white sheriff’s department Bronco to film driving Wyoming roads.

As a creative consultant for the pilot, Johnson spent three weeks on set in New Mexico. People ask him what it was like to walk into a world he created, to meet the people and see the places he had written about for the past eight years. He compares it to walking past a house plant every day when, one morning, the plant says, “Good morning. How are you?”

“It’s great, but weird. Odd but wonderful,” Johnson said.

“They built the entire Absaroka County Sheriff’s Department. They had four Broncos there with the emblems on them. There was Walt’s log cabin. Everything they did, they did with such a sense of detail.”

Until recently, Johnson hadn’t seen the pilot. He was on tour for his seventh Walt Longmire book and the first to make it on the New York Times Best Seller list, “Hell is Empty,” when executives asked him to fly to Warner Brothers Studios for the screening. He had three book events planned that day, so his wife, Judy, went instead.

But as a surprise for their 13th wedding anniversary, she arranged for a copy to be sent to the house — for their eyes only.

Johnson had half convinced himself that the pilot wouldn’t be picked up, that it wouldn’t be able to capture the essence of his characters.

“Not-much-to-my-surprise, it was fantastic,” he wrote in his email announcement. “Now, the wait was like agony. The performances were magnificent, the camera work inspiring, the sets and location breathtaking, the writing as sharp as a razor.

“What if A&E passed on this? It would be criminal.”

In the end, A&E didn’t pass on it. And next summer, all of Wyoming can see what a county-24 license plate looks like.

Here’s your sneak-peek:

WYO Expects Longmire Series Pick Up to Land Back in #NM to #Film

Posted by on December 6, 2011 | One comment

Longmire, the television series pilot, based on Craig Johnson’s novels about small-town sheriff Walt Longmire filmed right here in New Mexico last spring.

A&E has since picked the contemporary western crime drama for a 10 episode first-season to air on the network in 2012. The series stars Robert Taylor (The Matrix), Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica, 24), Cassidy Freeman (Smallville) and friend to NM Lou Diamond Phillips.

The Wyoming Business Report recently featured a story on the upcoming series touting that as the setting of the story, Wyoming is expected to be used for backgrounds and various footage.

HOWEVER Michell Howard, of the Wyoming Film Office, said “the series pilot was filmed in New Mexico and likely will continue there since Wyoming doesn’t have sound stages and enough established TV production crews.”

More on the series and its cast from Boom Tron:

Robert Taylor plays the man the show and novels are named after, Walt Longmire. He’s the dedicated and unwavering sheriff of Absaroka County. Recently widowed, he hides his pain behind his charisma and dry wit.

Sackhoff plays one of Walt’s deputies. Her character’s only been working with Walt for six months after working homicide in Philadelphia for five years. They two share a playful relationship, though some sexual tension may be building under the surface. Also cast in the series is Lou Diamond Phillips, Bailey Chase, and Cassidy Freeman. Chris Chulack, who is best known for his extensive work on ER, directed the pilot while Hunt Baldwin and John Coveny wrote it.

Longmire is a fantastic opportunity for Robert Taylor to break in to the mainstream. He’s an Australian actor with only a handful of film credits to his name. He most recently starred in the Australian thrillers Storm Warning and Rogue (which also starred fellow Aussie Sam Worthington) in 2007 and in 2009 he starred in Coffin Rock.

The battle rages on and New Mexico remains in the lead. The buzz around a romantic comedy pairing Sarah Jessica Parker and Hugh Grant is strolling toward fruition. The film, set in Wyoming scouted locations in Connecticut among others – but New Mexico has won out.

Longmire needs a new network home

Posted by on August 28, 2014 | 29 comments

Longmire Cancelled for nowImage via author, Craig Johnson on Facebook

Don’t fret N. Mex! On the emo side of this story I say, another network MUST pick up this hit series. By its own account, A&E logged the series as its “most-watched original drama series of all time”. On top of that, the “Longmire Posse” is nothing to tinker with!

On the suspicious side, I’m hoping for a turn toward this becoming nothing but a major publicity stunt. Stunt or not, it’s time for a public outcry that the show come back in some way, shape or form. You can’t just let the series die a lonely, back country death.

As for the possible hit to New Mexico television production, take heart in knowing that television productions are alive & well in the state. In addition to the CW series, The Messengers, WGN’s Manhattan and the return of NBC’s, The Night Shift, James McGill is hard at work in the #BreakingBad prequel, Better Call Saul. And at least one (television series pilot) is rumored to be gearing up to shoot right here in the Q, while the relocated production of USA Network’s, Dig is set to begin filming within weeks.

B.T.dubs, this is not the first kink Longmire the series has encountered…it wasn’t an easy row to hoe to get to production rolling in the first place, as its home setting, Wyoming, proved to be less film friendly than New Mexico. So, here’s to finding a more Longmire friendly network for the beloved NM series.

Burqueños abuzz over Odenkirk

Posted by on June 1, 2014 | Comments Off on Burqueños abuzz over Odenkirk

A Facebook account that appears to belong to THE REAL Bob Odenkirk has put up a post that has local Breaking Bad fans crying in their Pollos Hermanos mugs:

Bob Odenkirk filming Better Call Saul in Albuquerque Drama

This Blogette says, don’t cry Burqueños! I see the writing on the Facebook wall just like you and it stings a little, but wait! Filming location and setting are oft two very different animals. Am I right, or am I right, or am I right?

Believe it or not New Mexico has played stand-in for such exotic locales as Egypt, Cali, Wyoming, Mexico, other worlds, other galaxies and yes even the East Coast…perhaps you’re familiar with the story of a mad chemistry teacher who made his way all the way to New Hampshire to escape his drug dealing comeuppance. And that my friends was all filmed right here in New Mexico.

So take heart #NM, come November New Mexico WILL hit the small screen again in Better Call Saul – under the talented hand of Sir Odenkirk, led by Masters Gilligan and Gould, for most if not all of its filming. Now the only other devastating turn of events, besides leaving NM to shoot would be if “Lynette” doesn’t land a role:

p.s. OHI has confirmed with sources within the production that NM is the only location on the shooting schedule for now…

p.p.s Filming starts tomorrow, in the Q!

ABC’s Killer Women to shoot in ABQ

Posted by on August 22, 2013 | 3 comments

UPDATE 8/23/13: It looks like your local casting connection for this New Mexico production will be Kiira Arai Casting LLC. Keep up to date with her casting announcements here.

NEW MEXICO BOUND – From executive producer Sofia Vergara comes the ABC midseason series pick-up, Killer Women. Filling the gaps before the Fall start of longstanding ABC hits, Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, Nashville and Once Upon a Time, will be a bevy of new series in lieu of the outdated practice of simply airing repeats.

The ABC pilot of Killer Women was shot in Texas, the show’s backdrop, but will move regular production to Albuquerque next month.

Along with the NBC show, The Night Shift, now in production in Albuquerque, this series marks an important upturn for procedural television for the New Mexico film industry – the local economic impact and worldwide acclaim of which can no longer be denied. And with the recent wrap of the state’s most successful television series to date, AMC’s Breaking Bad, the ABC production is a welcome addition – hot on the heels of another series stand-in, as northern New Mexico has had a very successful run portraying Wyoming in two full seasons of the A&E hit series Longmire.

According to the New Mexico film office, the production will employ more than 150 New Mexico crew members and more than 250 actors and extras. The female led show centers on Molly Parker, played by Tricia Helfer (Two and a Half Men, Tron: Uprising, The Firm), the only woman in the notoriously male Texas Rangers, “a ballsy, beautiful badass who knows how to get to the truth and isn’t afraid to ruffle a few feathers on her way there.” – per IMDb.

Marc Blucas (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Michael Trucco (Castle, How I Met Your Mother, Revenge), Alex Fernandez (Mistresses, Devious Maids, Dallas) and Marta Milans (Valientes, The American Experience) round out the cast.

Killer Women will begin filming in Albuquerque and surrounding areas in September.

Longmire Blowin’ Up in NM

Posted by on June 13, 2012 | Comments Off on Longmire Blowin’ Up in NM

Not since Breaking Bad MADNESS first broke wide open, has our traffic meter hit the kind of highs it’s hitting with the quick success of the A&E series Longmire.

Since its “distinctive premiere”, the quickly green-lit, highly anticipated, contemporary western drama set in WYO is exploding in our search terms, “where is Longmire filmed?”, “Stars of Longmire”, and “Longmire Television Series”.

Goooooooooooooal New Mexico! After the sad goodbye to In Plain Sight earlier this year and the absolutely heart wrenching, impending farewell to our beloved Breaking Bad, Longmire is a bright light in #NMFilm futures sights!

To feed you more awesome, upon awesome in touting New Mexico Film, all reports coming in here say that the CBS series pick-up of the Dennis Quaid 60s era drama will return to New Mexico to shoot! Here’s hoping those (multiple) rumors are TRUE!

In any case we can confirm, proof positive that once again…the WORLD is watching New Mexico Film!

Rocky Mountain aims to High-tail away with NM film prospects

Posted by on May 10, 2012 | Comments Off on Rocky Mountain aims to High-tail away with NM film prospects

The Colorado State Senate has passed incentive legislation doubling rebates for film production.

From the Denver Post: (click for full article)

Colorado’s 10 percent film incentive program was one of the weakest, especially when compared to 25 percent incentive programs in neighboring New Mexico, Wyoming and Utah. (New Mexico’s 25 percent incentive has lured 159 major productions in the past nine years, stirring almost $4 billion in economic impact and paying out $253 million in rebates, according to the New Mexico Film Office.)

While New Mexico’s reigning administration is angling to drag out multi-year “study” of State Film Incentives impact, today Deadline reports that a study released by Ernest & Young shows that state film incentive programs are good for local economies.

LONGMIRE PREMIERE TRAILER

Posted by on April 30, 2012 | Comments Off on LONGMIRE PREMIERE TRAILER

New Mexico stands-in for WYO in this highly anticipated drama series, starring the incomparable Robert Taylor as title character/badass Western Sheriff, Walt Longmire.

The series, as we’ve long been following for you here (click & scroll) shoots in Santa Fe and surrounding areas.

Via Press Release:

A&E Network will premiere the new original scripted drama series, “Longmire” on Sunday, June 3 at 10 PM ET/PT immediately following the third season premiere of the returning hit drama “The Glades” at 9 PM ET/PT.

“Longmire,” a contemporary crime thriller set in Big Sky country, is based on the Walt Longmire Mystery novels by best-selling author Craig Johnson. The series stars Australian actor Robert Taylor (The Matrix) as Walt Longmire, the charismatic, dedicated and unflappable sheriff of Absaroka County, Wyoming,along with Katee Sackhoff (“Battlestar Galactica”), Lou Diamond Phillips (“Numb3rs”), Bailey Chase (“Damages”), Cassidy Freeman (“Smallville”) and newcomer Adam Bartley. The premiere season will feature ten one-hour episodes.

Widowed only a year, Longmire is a man in psychic repair who buries his pain behind a brave face and dry wit.
