A television pilot for a new science fiction drama on The CW network will begin shooting in the state this month.
According to the Television Show Auditions website, the show is called The Messengers, which is
"an apocalyptic drama that starts with a mysterious object crashing down to Earth. A group of seemingly unconnected strangers die from the energy pulse, but then awaken to learn they have been deemed responsible for preventing the impending Apocalypse.""
White Turtle Casting, a New Mexico company is seeking 18 year olds "who look younger," real military, ex military and military types" as well as others for the pilot.
When my friend Matt alerted me to this production, I assumed it was the television series production that Gov. Susana Martinez is set to announce this afternoon.
However, according to Martinez's spokesman Enrique Knell, today's message will not be about The Messengers.
We'll see what's in store.
UPDATE: 3-6-14 10:00 am. What was in store was Manhattan, a series about the Manhattan Project in Los Alamos, to be shot in Santa Fe. My story is HERE
