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!

First Look at New Mexico & Dennis Quaid in “Las Vegas Project”

Posted by on May 16, 2012 | Comments Off on First Look at New Mexico & Dennis Quaid in “Las Vegas Project”


As we’ve been following for you here, New Mexico just recently wrapped standing-in for 1960s era Las Vegas, NV, in the “Untitled Las Vegas Project” television series pilot, which has been ordered for the 2012-2013 fall season on CBS primetime!

CBS has just released this first-look at all the show’s stars in action, including the decidedly distinct look of the Southwest that NM lends to the series.

This comes hours after the casting co. which staffed the show with hundreds of local extra and background talent, released this info. on their Facebook page:

“”ULVP” (Untitled Las Vegas Project) New Mexico *UPDATE* – Afraid we have bad news for NM about this project. Rumor (from a producer on the show) is that they will be filming the series from the “Untitled Las Vegas Project” pilot shot here in NM…..in LA (not sure if he meant Los Angeles or Louisiana). Hope the “rumor” isn’t true!!” –On Location Casting

Stay tuned…

Special nod to CLB, one of our local faves for her work on the series pilot!

Tin Star Picked off, Dennis Quaid Picked-up

Posted by on May 14, 2012 | One comment

While the TNT pilot for “Tin Star” has recently been axed by the cable network, CBS is moving forward with a 60s period, crime drama; based on real life western Sheriff, Ralph Lamb.

The “Untitled Vegas Project” pilot production just recently wrapped in northern New Mexico, with principal shooting at Santa Fe Studios and locations in and around Las Vegas, NM.

This Wednesday the so-called Tiffany network is set to announce the Quaid led series as an official part of their 2012-2013 fall line-up.

This marks the first starring television role for Quaid. The iconic Ralph Lamb was on hand for part of the pilot filming, watching the acclaimed film star portray him, and said, “I thought he did a magnificent job.”

Michael Chiklis (The Shield), Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix), and Jason O’Mara (Terra Nova) also star.

Thanks Nancy

Hello Cowboy – Dennis Quaid to Saddle-up New Mexico Style

Posted by on February 22, 2012 | One comment

The long rumored, dramatic series pilot prospect, centered on Rodeo Cowboy turned Clark County Sheriff, Ralph Lamb appears to be materializing right here in New Mexico.

Local industry diehards (literally) are purportedly prepping in Santa Fe, Las Vegas and Albuquerque to receive the CBS Studios pilot for the untitled “Lamb” project.

The real-life career of Las Vegas Sheriff, Ralph Lamb spanned nearly two decades in the 60s and 70s, where his now storied figure, known as the “Cowboy Sheriff” reportedly oft engaged in hand to hand combat up against formidable foes including members of the Mafia and the Hell’s Angels.

James Mangold (Wolverine, Walk the Line) is set to direct the periodic series pilot as penned by Nicholas Pileggi (GoodFellas) for a prospective spot in a fall 2012 CBS line-up.

The rumors on top of rumors (aka trusted industry reports/sources and whispers in the wind) say that none other than Dennis Quaid is slated for the lead role as Lamb himself with one formidable foe role being filled nicely by Michael Chiklis.

Our sources and scheduling alike would mandate that the project is currently in pre-production, to be followed by March shoot dates.
