SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) – State film officials say NBC’s new television supernatural drama “Midnight, Texas” will be shooting in New Mexico through early next year.
Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Bernalillo and Belen are serving as backdrops for the series, which is based on a collection of books by author Charlaine Harris.
Home to a vampire, witch, angel and hit woman, Midnight, Texas is a mysterious safe haven for those who are different until one of their own is murdered.
The cast includes Francois Arnaud, Dylan Bruce, Parisa Fitz-Henley and Arielle Kebbel.
While in New Mexico, the production will employ over 450 local crew members and about 1,800 local background talent.
The pilot episode was directed by Niels Arden Oplev. Other directors involved in the series include David Solomon, Steve Shill and Milan Cheylov.
