The Loud House live-action series begins production in New Mexico

New Mexico State Film Office has confirmed Nickelodeon Studios will begin principal photography this month on Paramount+ original live-action series, The Loud House, in Albuquerque.

The Loud House series - based on the Emmy Award-winning animated show - centres on Lincoln Loud, an 11-year-old boy with 10 sisters, as he navigates everyday life with such a large family. Dubbed the 'Man with a Plan, Lincoln enlists the help of his best friend Clyde McBride to tackle the obstacles and mayhem that they encounter during their daily adventures.

The 10-episode series will see the real-life versions of the Loud family from Nickelodeon’s A Loud House Christmas, which was the top kids’ entertainment telecast in 2021, with kids 6-11, across all TV. It is slated to premiere exclusively on Paramount+ later this year.

The Loud House series is executive produced by Tim Hobert (The Middle, Scrubs, Community), Jonathan Judge (A Loud House Christmas, Warped!, Life in Pieces) and Michael Rubiner (The Loud House). Hobert also serves as showrunner and the pilot is directed by Judge.

Production of the series for Nickelodeon Studios is overseen by Shauna Phelan and Zack Olin, co-heads of Nickelodeon & Awesomeness Live-Action.

The production will employ approximately 125 New Mexico crew members, 20 New Mexico principal actors, and approximately 400 New Mexico background talent.

Members of cast expected to reprise their roles include: Wolfgang Schaeffer as Lincoln Loud, Jahzir Bruno as Clyde McBride, Brian Stepanek as Lynn Loud Sr., Sophia Woodward as Luna Loud, Catherine Ashmore Bradley as Luan Loud, Aubin Bradley as Lucy Loud, Ella Allan as Lola Loud, Mia Allan as Lana Loud, and Lexi Janicek as Lisa Loud.

New cast members set to join the series are Jolie Jenkins as Rita Loud, Eva Carlton as Leni Loud, and Annaka Fourneret as Lynn Loud.

'Under the leadership of governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, New Mexico has become a film and television production powerhouse and we are coming off another record fiscal year for direct spending by the industry,' said Alicia J. Keyes, economic development department cabinet secretary.

'Dollars spent during the 10-episode series of The Loud House will circulate throughout the economy and help small businesses grow their revenue and create more jobs,' she added.

New Mexico State Film Office director, Amber Dodson said: 'New Mexico is a film and television hub for productions of all scales and sizes. We are very pleased to have this live-action Nickelodeon series, based on a globally-recognised property, choose our beautiful state, and employ our top-notch New Mexican crew to bring this series to the screen.'

She continued: 'As one of Nick’s most beloved animated franchises, The Loud House has made its way into the hearts of millions of fans across the globe,” Shauna Phelan, co-head of Nickelodeon & Awesomeness Live-Action, said. “When we brought the animated world of Royal Woods to life with A Loud House Christmas, it instantly became a holiday favourite for both new and loyal fans alike, and I just know that they will love what our amazing creative team is preparing for this new live-action series.'

Jonathan Judge, director and executive producer of the series added: 'I am super excited to bring this large and loud production to Albuquerque,'  

'I’ve really enjoyed meeting local crew and collaborators and I’m looking forward to the journey of bringing this series to life,' he added
