Untitled Shea Serrano series begins production in New Mexico

The Amazon Studios and Universal Television series is inspired by author Serrano’s life growing up in San Antonio

Principal photography for Amazon Studios and Universal Television series Untitled Shea Serrano Project has started in Albuquerque.

New Mexico State Film Office director Amber Dodson said the series will shoot in and around the city until July, 2022.

The single-camera series, inspired by author Serrano’s life growing up in San Antonio, follows a teenager balancing college aspirations, societal expectations, and a hectic home life, anchored by his single mother and five uncles.

Serrano serves as creator of the series and executive producer, alongside Michael Schur via Fremulon, David Miner for 3 Arts Entertainment, and Morgan Sackett. Peter Murrieta and Lisa Muse Bryant also serve as executive producers.

The series, which will stream on Amazon Freevee, is produced by Amazon Studios and Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.

NMFO's Dodson said: 'We are thrilled that our partners at Universal Television and Amazon Studios are bringing this television series to New Mexico, and we welcome Shea Serrano and the cast and crew.

'Our beautiful state can double for hundreds of places including Texas - plus we offer a deep and skilled workforce, film-friendly businesses, and a competitive tax incentive. We hope this is the first of many seasons made right here in New Mexico.'

The project will recruit around 300 New Mexico crew members.
