The Land of Enchantment just got another TV show, and it helps fill the void left by “Breaking Bad.”
New Mexico Film Office Director Nick Maniatis announced today that the upcoming NBC television series “The Night Shift,” produced by Sachs/Judah productions in association with Sony Pictures Television, will begin production in Albuquerque at the end of August and is set to continue through mid-November.
The production will employ more than 100 New Mexico crew members per week and more than 300 New Mexico actors and extras per episode.
“The incredibly popular ‘Breaking Bad’ TV series has wrapped up its production in New Mexico and the final season is set to begin this week,” said Governor Susana Martinez. “As we say goodbye to Walter White, it’s nice to welcome a new TV series to New Mexico. Our state continues to be highly competitive for film and TV productions, and I know ‘The Night Shift’ will find talented crew members and a welcoming community here. I wish the show great success and hope they will shoot in New Mexico for quite some time.”
The series is produced by executive producers Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah, co-executive producerCarla Kettner, line producer Stewart Lyons, supervising producers Dailyn Rodriguez and Bridget Bedard, and producersJanet Lin, Matt Partney and Corey Evett.
Starring Eoin Macken, Jill Flint, Daniella Alonso, Brendan Fehr, Robert Bailey, Jr., Jeananne Goossen, JR Lemon with Ken Leung and Freddy Rodriguez.
“The Night Shift” is an ensemble medical show about a group of ex-Army doctors who work the night shift at a hospital in San Antonio, Texas, and do whatever it takes to help their patients.
Using battlefield tested medical skills, doctors clash with hospital bureaucrats who are more worried about the bottom line than the lives of their patients.
“The Night Shift” pilot was filmed last year under the working title, “After Hours,” and was picked up by NBC earlier this spring.
