Midnight Texas to film full series in New Mexico
Supernatural drama Midnight, Texas, is set to film a full series on location in New Mexico, doubling the south-western US state for Texas.
Based on a series of books by True Blood novelist Charlaine Harris, the drama follows a vampire, a witch, an angel and an assassin as they face off against malevolent forces in a remote Texas town.
“Albuquerque welcomes the TV series Midnight, Texas to our city,” said Richard Berry, mayor of Albuquerque.
“The film industry provides high-paying, creative jobs to our citizens and many businesses are affected positively by the filming here in Albuquerque.”
New Mexico regularly doubles for Texas as it offers similar visuals and stronger filming incentives.
Texas has secured filming for the big-budget sci-fi movie Alita: Battle Angel, but this is likely due to the involvement of star filmmaker Robert Rodriguez, who bases his operations in Austin. However, Even Rodriguez’s TV drama From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series recently relocated to New Mexico.
New TV drama Get Shorty will also film scenes in New Mexico, in addition to Los Angeles.
