The Fall TV season for 2013 is just around the corner with the major TV networks. Filming has begun in Hollywood looking for acting talent. Two TV shows have come to New Mexico to film & they are “The Night Shift” (NBC) plus “Killer Women” (ABC). Casting calls recently went out seeking background extra talent in Albuquerque, N.M. Both look to be mid-season replacement shows on each network schedule. Things may change if any new Fall TV show is canceled early on. Re-scheduling happens constantly when TV ratings are low for any particular show.
“Killer Women” is about the Texas Rangers from Texas, but production has moved to Albuquerque as part of the backdrop of the show. “The Night Shift” has been in limbo for over a year now. NBC ordered several episodes, but did not put it on their prime-time schedule. It is also set in the state of Texas, but is also filming in Albuquerque.
As TV production comes to New Mexico local crews & performing talent will be hired which adds money to the states economy. Governor Susana Martinez signed the “Breaking Bad” TV bill into law earlier this year which raises the tax incentives from 25% to 30%. It all depends on the longevity of TV production. “Breaking Bad” had filmed in New Mexico for 5 TV seasons. “Longmire” is now affected by the law as it ends a very popular second TV season.
According to the official website of “Killer Women” the synopsis is right here - “Of all the notorious lawmen who ever patrolled the violent Texas frontier, none are more storied than the Texas Rangers. Being the only female ranger in this elite squad isn’t going to stop ballsy, badass Molly Parker (Tricia Helfer).”
“Molly is committed to finding the truth and seeing justice served. While she’s surrounded by law enforcement colleagues who want to see her fail, including police lieutenant Estaban Salazar (Vic Trevino). The Rangers have her back led by company commander Luis Zea (Alex Fernandez).”
According to the official website of “The Night Shift” the synopsis is right here - “At 'San Antonio Memorial' those who work the 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. 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.”
