FILMING BEGINS MARCH 20 in northern New Mexico
From the Associated Press: A decade after Albuquerque’s mayor banned “Cops” from filming in New Mexico’s largest city, the reality show is returning.
But this time, it is partnering with the county. And a spokeswoman for current Mayor Richard Berry made it clear the city still wants no part in the show that follows officers making drug busts and responding to calls in mostly run-down, crime-ridden neighborhoods.
Bernalillo County Sheriff Dan Houston said Thursday that the show will begin filming with his department in April for its 26th season, to air this summer.
One of television’s original reality shows, “Cops” used to film Albuquerque police officers. But former Mayor Martin Chavez put an end to that partnership more than a decade ago, saying the show portrayed the city in a bad light.
A spokeswoman for current Mayor Richard Berry says the city was not approached about participating when the production returns.
“Had we been,” said Erin Thompson, “Mayor Berry has made it clear that he would have declined, as he is concentrating his efforts on opportunities to highlight Albuquerque as a center of innovation, arts and diversity which we believe will bring consistently positive attention to Albuquerque as a model place to live and do business. ”
While the show has become one of the longest-running in U.S. history, it has over the years drawn fire from critics who say it shows street crime without putting it in a broader context of contributing social conditions.
Houston said the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department is excited to be part of the show. It’s a great way to showcase the county’s high quality deputies, he said.
The Albuquerque Police Department, meantime, is struggling to repair its reputation. The department currently is under a U.S. Justice Department civil rights investigation into allegations of excessive force and three dozen shootings by officers since 2010.
Pre Walter White, pre billboards and bus benches, Saul Goodman was a wee McGill, and hopefully the television watching world is just dying to know how he came to be the guy who knows a guy, “who knows a guy…”
The many open ended backstory possibilities for everyone’s favorite criminal lawyer are set to be showcased in the new AMC show dubbed “Better Call Saul”. All summer long Bad fans had been watching and waiting for word from show creator Vince Gillagan and AMC Television for the verdict on the prospective spin-off.
That word came last month, as Baddies were bracing to say goodbye to the series that spawned the Peter Gould created character. Recent reports from the top point to a dark toned series replete with that twisted Saul Goodman humor and wit.
Many of us New Mexicans have been on the edge of our seat, waiting and wondering when the thumbs up, or down would finally pop-out, indicating whether or not the production would take root here where Breaking Bad called home.
Of course we could be wrong, our Star Wars reports have come under fire, but then again so did our Avengers and Lone Ranger suppositions…
What we do know for sure it that things are really hopping down at the largest studios in the city. Before you know it everyone from A to N BC will be airing a New Mexico production!
The Syfy network is looking to expand its original programming lineup with a possible 8 to 10 episode run of a time travel thriller based on Terry Gilliam‘s acclaimed 1995 film, 12 Monkeys in which:
“An unknown and lethal virus has wiped out five billion people in 1996. Only 1% of the population has survived by the year 2035, and is forced to live underground. A convict (James Cole) reluctantly volunteers to be sent back in time to 1996 to gather information about the origin of the epidemic (who he’s told was spread by a mysterious “Army of the Twelve Monkeys”) and locate the virus before it mutates so that scientists can study it. Unfortunately Cole is mistakenly sent to 1990, six years earlier than expected, and is arrested and locked up in a mental institution, where he meets Dr. Kathryn Railly, a psychiatrist, and Jeffrey Goines, the insane son of a famous scientist and virus expert.”
The pilot purchased for development by Syfy has been scripted by Travis Fickett and Terry Matalas, and is set to pick-up where the original film left off.
Jon Cassar will direct production for Atlas Entertainment and Universal Cable Productions.
Filming is rumored to take place right here in New Mexico where the Syfy series Stargate Universe was shot back in 2009 and 2010.

UPDATE 1/13/14: Stay tuned here for extras casting info. on this project, set to begin production in New Mexico in February.
A world at war, faceless dangers half the globe away, and threats of universal dominance by an alliance of untold magnitude, are what teams of top physicists, mathematicians, and engineers faced in defending allies from tyrannical rule in the 1940s.
As we told you here WGN America is taking that tumultuous time in real world history and scripting it into a new drama series. Now HOT off the wire this week is the news that the 13 series order will go forward with production right here in New Mexico in the upcoming winter months, as expected.
Created by Sam Shaw (Masters of Sex), “Manhattan” is set against the backdrop of the clandestine mission of the same name to build the world’s first atomic bomb in Los Alamos, New Mexico. The storyline follows the brilliant but flawed scientists and their families as they attempt to co-exist in a world where secrets and lies infiltrate every aspect of their lives.
Shaw will write and executive produce with David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross. Emmy-winning director Thomas Schlamme (The West Wing) will direct and executive produce the production.
“Sam and Tommy’s (Schlamme) passion for the world of Los Alamos, the Manhattan Project, and the characters who populate it came through from the moment we all sat down to discuss the project, and we couldn’t be more excited to support them as they bring their vision to life,” WGN America president Matt Cherniss told Deadline Hollywood adding, “We feel Manhattan has all of the elements to make for a provocative and memorable series…”
Robert Baxter Casting is prepping to cast photo doubles and stand-ins for several Actresses and Actors on the New Mexico production of the ABC series, “Killer Women”.
Currently they are looking for a stand-in and double for Tricia Helfer. She is 5 ft. 11 inches tall. 130 lbs Blue eyes med brown hair.
If this is you and you are available, please send a recent photo and phone number to robertbaxtercasting@ gmail.com
Deadline Hollywood reports that WGN America has ordered a thirteen episode, scripted drama series called, Manhattan.
The show centers on the lives and lies of “brilliant but flawed scientists” during the secret 1940s military project to create the world’s first atomic bomb.
Manhattan will delve into dramatized happenings surrounding the portion of clandestine mission as it unfolded in Los Alamos, New Mexico.
The project, originally based in New York, spawned facilities in Tennessee, Washington and New Mexico – where four weapons were produced; two of which, Little Boy and Fat Man, were used against Japan in August 1945. The Manhattan Project officially ended in 1946.
The series is set to premiere in the summer of 2014. Production is slated to begin this winter in… where else, New Mexico!

At San Antonio Memorial, those who work the 7pm – 7am shift are a special breed. Welcome to the night shift, where every day is a fight between the heroic efforts of saving lives and the hard truths of running a hospital. After a grueling tour of duty in Afghanistan, adrenaline junkie TC Callahan became accustomed to combat, but he could have never guessed that his toughest battles would be fought right here at home. TC and his irreverent team of late night docs know how to let off steam with the casual prank or two, but when lives are at stake, they are all business.
Unfortunately, the night shift is now under new management, and boss Michael Ragosa is more interested in cutting costs than helping people. But TC has never met a rule he couldn’t break, or a person he won’t stand up to. And it’s clear that not even Jordan, TC’s ex-girlfriend and now Ragosa’s second in charge, has a chance at keeping him in line. If Ragosa wants a war… he’ll get one.
Executive producers/writers Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah (“Diary of a Wimpy Kid”).
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.
Extras and Background Casting details to follow…
Nearing the end of the second season shoot of Longmire in northern New Mexico, local Casting Director Robert Baxter is currently casting a few of the final scenes to be shot this week and next week.
Several people to be in a bar scene tomorrow Thursday July 25th between 30 and 50 years old, some who can country dance.
