From Dusk Till Dawn relocates to New Mexico
Television drama From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series will film its third season on location in Albuquerque, New Mexico, relocating from Texas.
The drama is a TV adaptation of the 1996 vampire horror of the same name that was one of George Clooney’s star-making film roles after the long-term success of ER on the small screen.
Written by Quentin Tarantino and directed by Robert Rodriguez, From Dusk Till Dawn spawned two underwhelming sequels in the late 90s, but Rodriguez was integrally involved with rebooting the concept as a TV series in 2014.
From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series (pictured) filmed its first two seasons in Austin, Texas, where Rodriguez bases his production facility Troublemaker Studios.
The move to Albuquerque is not a surprise. New Mexico offers more comprehensive production support spearheaded by a generous 30% filming incentive for TV shoots (the rate for films is a slightly lower 25%) and has become a major production hub, especially for projects set in desert locations.
Albuquerque is New Mexico’s main filming centre but Santa Fe is starting to raise its profile and has recently hosted large-scale productions including a remake of The Magnificent Seven. In January the city announced the launch of its first film commission.
Santa Fe is also reportedly set to host filming for the Netflix Western miniseries series Godless, a story set in the 1880s that has filmmaker Steven Soderbergh involved as an executive producer.
