Mickey Mouse likes the house that New Mexico built. Disney is the parent co. to ABC, ABC Family, ~Dreamworks and Marvel, all of whish (Messican typo, that stays) have worked NM productions – from multiple television pilots, tv movies, to a couple lil’ family films like Thor and The Avengers.
Now ABC has a budding prime-time drama series hit on their hands that has some NM paw prints all over it.
Series star, Emily Van Camp is a NM movie vet with her work on the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie Beyond the Blackboard. As we told you here the sweet hometown boy in the show is played by NM native Nick Wechsler. And as we’ve been following here, we anxiously await the directorial debut of Revenge villainess vixen extraordinairess, Madeline Stowe – which is slated to bring WOLVERINE and Edward/Jacob or whoever Robert Pattinson plays in Twilight to New Mexico!
So ICYMI: The show is awesome and easily scores a 4 on the Scoville Scale of hotness for its New Mexico connections alone and a solid 10 for its viewability – LOVE IT!
UPDATE 4/24/11: One of the Albuquerque natives who star in tonight’s premiere of Beyond the Blackboard has recently been cast in the upcoming major motion picture The Hunger Games. CONGRATULATIONS to New Mexico’s Own Willow Shields!
The Hallmark Hall of Fame original movie originally titled Let Them Shine, shot right here in NM last summer has a new name and an official air-date.
