It’s official — “The Cleaning Lady” is in New Mexico.
The upcoming Fox series is filming the first season in New Mexico.
According to the New Mexico Film Office, the production will film through November in Albuquerque and surrounding areas. The series will premiere on Sept. 1.
The pilot was filmed in early 2020 and got picked up by Fox earlier this year.
“After the pilot was shot here in New Mexico, we were thrilled to learn it was picked up and the first season will also be shot here,” said Amber Dodson, New Mexico Film Office director. “The production will employ thousands of New Mexicans over the next few months, and we look forward to seeing this show on the screen.”
“The Cleaning Lady” stars Elodie Yung, who is known for her role in the series, “Daredevil” and “The Defenders.”
Yung stars as Thony, a whip-smart doctor who comes to the U.S. for a medical treatment to save her ailing son. But when the system fails and pushes her into hiding, she refuses to be beaten down and marginalized. Instead, she becomes a cleaning lady for the mob and starts playing the game by her own rules.
Adan Canto, Oliver Hudson, Martha Millan, Sebastien LaSalle, and Valentino LaSalle also star in the series.
It is produced by Miranda Kwok, Melissa Carter, Shay Mitchell, Rose Marie Vega, and Paola Suarez.
“We could not have had a more positive experience filming in New Mexico. The talent and professionalism were top notch. Cast and crew were like family,” said Kwok.
“After shooting ‘The Cleaning Lady’ pilot with such an experienced and talented crew, great local casting and location choices, there was never a doubt that we would shoot the series anywhere else but in New Mexico,” Carter said.
The production will employ approximately 200 New Mexico crew members, six New Mexico principal actors, and over 1,800 New Mexico background and extras, according to the New Mexico Film Office.
