Santa Fe, N.M.
– The New Mexico State Film Office announced that the television series “Interrogation” produced by CBS Television Studios will begin principal photography mid-March in Albuquerque.
The series was co-created by Anders Weidemann (“30 Degrees In February”) and John Mankiewicz (“House of Cards,” “Bosch”). Both will serve as executive producers alongside Fabrik Entertainment’s Henrik Bastin (“Bosch”) and Melissa Aouate. The television series is directed by Ernest Dickerson ("Bosch," "The Walking Dead"), who also serves as executive producer, and Patrick Cady.
The production will employ more than 150 New Mexico crew members and approximately 2,500 New Mexico background talent - about 250 per episode.
“This is another great example of how New Mexico is becoming a destination for both film and television production. These are good jobs that are helping to diversify our economy,” said Cabinet Secretary Alicia J. Keyes of the New Mexico Economic Development Department and a former Walt Disney Co. executive.
"We welcome the crew of the T.V. series ‘Interrogation’ to Albuquerque," said Mayor Tim Keller. "This industry is a big part of Albuquerque’s creative economy, a strong and growing sector that creates local jobs and supports local businesses. The opportunities it is bringing to our workforce and rippled effects will add even more momentum to our work to build an economy that works for everyone."
Starring Peter Sarsgaard, Kyle Gallner, Kodi Smit-McPhee and David Strathairn, "Interrogation" is a true-crime drama series in which the viewer becomes the detective. The series is based on a true story that spanned more than 30 years, in which a young man was charged and convicted of brutally murdering his mother. Each episode is structured around an interrogation. The first nine episodes of the series will be available to binge in any order, and the season finale will be released at a later date.
