CBS’ pilot ‘Mission Control’ filming in NM


A new CBS pilot is hoping to reach new heights.

The pilot for “Mission Control” is being filmed in Albuquerque. It is being filmed at Albuquerque Studios.

“Mission Control” focuses on the next generation of NASA astronauts and scientists as they juggle both their personal and professional lives during a critical mission with no margin for error.

“Whenever we have another TV pilot, we have a good chance for another TV series to follow,” said New Mexico State Film Office Director Nick Maniatis. “I know New Mexico will do its part to make this pilot the best it can be and we look forward to the possibilities this Pilot brings.”

The pilot stars Poppy Montgomery, David Giuntoli, Peyton List, Wunmi Mosaku and Nestor Serrano.

Since Maniatis has taken the helm at the New Mexico Film Office, it’s been a goal to bring more TV productions to the state.

On deck are the returning seasons for “Better Call Saul” in April, as well as the return for “The Night Shift” and the premiere of “Midnight, Texas,” both in June and July, respectively.

“Mission Control” is produced by CBS Television Studios.

The pilot is executive produced by Brian Buckner, Andy Weir, Chic Eglee, Genre Films’ Simon Kinberg and Aditya Sood.

Slingshot Global Media’s Courtney Conte and Quan Phung are also involved in producing.

The pilot is being directed by Jeremy Podeswa, who has helmed the camera for “Boardwalk Empire” and “Game of Thrones.”
