New Mexico Film Office Announces "Obliterated"

Began Filming in New Mexico New Netflix One-Hour Action-Comedy Produced by Sony Pictures Television

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - New Mexico State Film Office Director Amber Dodson

announced today that "Obliterated," a Netflix television series produced by Sony Pictures Television, began principal photography in July and is continuing through October, in and around Albuquerque.

From the creators of the hit series "Cobra Kai," Jon Hurwitz, Josh Heald, and Hayden Schlossberg will also serve as executive producers and directors of "Obliterated."

The new action-comedy tells the story of an elite special forces team that thwarts a deadly threat to Las Vegas. 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.

“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 production will employ approximately 350 New Mexico crew members, 25 New Mexico principal actors, and approximately 2,000 New Mexico background talent.
