The creators of “Cobra Kai” have a new project filming in Albuquerque.
According to the New Mexico Film Office, Jon Hurwitz, Josh Heald, and Hayden Schlossberg are filming the TV series “Obliterated,” for Netflix.
It is also being produced by Sony Pictures Television.
“We are so excited to be making our next project in Albuquerque, where many of our friends have had an excellent experience filming,” the producers said. ” ‘Obliterated’ is a high-octane action-comedy that we’ve been planning for over a decade. We look forward to working with our mostly New Mexico-based crew to bring our vision to life.”
The series tells the story of an elite special forces team that thwarts a deadly threat to Las Vegas, Nevada.
After their celebratory party, filled with booze, drugs, and sex, the team discovers that the bomb they deactivated was a fake. The now intoxicated team has to fight through their impairments, overcome their personal issues, find the real bomb, and save the world. The series will have an eight-episode season.
According to the NM Film Office, principal photography began in July and continues through October, in and around Albuquerque.
