New Mexico snagged another Netflix show.

“Chambers” will begin principal photography mid-June through early November in Albuquerque.

“New Mexico’s dedication to creating a film friendly environment is paying off – we are proud to welcome a team with such a successful track record of past productions,” said New Mexico Film Office Director Nick Maniatis. “Our infrastructure, robust workforce, and powerful incentives have catalyzed New Mexico’s film industry growth and development.”

The series is being produced by Netflix and Benefactor Productions, LLC and 10 episodes were ordered earlier this year by Netflix with a 2019 premiere date.

“Chambers” is the story of a young heart attack survivor who becomes consumed by the mystery surrounding the heart that saved her life. However, the closer she gets to uncovering the truth about her donor’s sudden death, the more she starts taking on the characteristics of the deceased – some of which are troublingly sinister.

Uma Thurman will play Nancy, the mother of a heart donor, Becky, who forges a hesitant relationship with the young recipient only to find out her daughter may not be as dead as she thought.

Starring alongside Thurman is Tony Goldwyn, who plays Ben Lefevre and is Becky’s father. He is the philanthropic owner of Annex Power.

Born in El Paso, Lefevre’s money is self-made, and he attributes a large portion of that to The Annex Foundation – a new age spiritual center. After the death of his daughter, he becomes even more devoted to their cause.

According to the New Mexico Film Office, the production will employ approximately 180 New Mexico crew members, 75 New Mexico actors and approximately 400 New Mexico background talent.

Alfonso Gomez-Rejon will be an executive producer, director at least two episodes along with creator and executive producer/showrunner Leah Rachel and executive producers Stephen Gaghan via Super Emotional, Wolfgang Hammer & Winnie Kemp via SuperDeluxe and line producer Karen Moore.
