ABC has yet to determine whether “Killer Women” will return to its' prime-time schedule. The TV show was filmed at Albuquerque, N.M. The “New Mexico Film Office” (NMFO) announced last year in a press release stating that - “The production will employ over 150 New Mexico crew members and over 250 New Mexico actors and extras.”
Albuquerque's city mayor Richard J. Berry told NMFO, “We have had a banner year for filming in Albuquerque and we are thrilled to add ABC’s television show, Killer Women, to the incredible list of productions that have filmed here. Television productions are extremely important, because they keep Albuquerque film crews working for longer periods, showcase our city and become a more permanent fixture in the community.”
“Longmire” (A&E) will begin filming its' third TV season 2014 in New Mexico. “The Night Shift” (NBC) TV medical drama is slated to premiere this year as well & has wrapped filming episodes in Albuquerque.

She must compete to prove herself to the men within the Rangers but she knows her boss, Company Commander Luis Zea has her back.
