New Mexico Film Office Announces
Filming in New Mexico
SANTA FE, N.M. - New Mexico State Film Office Director Amber Dodson announced today that the television pilot Wild Life has begun principal photography in June around Albuquerque.
The pilot is directed by Rachel Raimist (“Roswell, New Mexico,” “The Sex Lives of College Girls,” “Wu-Tang: An American Saga”) and produced by Jason Ubaldi (“Youth and Consequences,” “All Night”), Chris Peterson (“That 70’s Show,” “Lab Rats”), Bryan Moore (“That 70’s Show,” “Lab Rats”), Chris Alberghini and Mike Chessler (“BH90210,” “Awkward”).
Wild Life is a teen comedy series that follows a diverse group of high school teens who are struggling with personal and social issues, and spend their school hours working at the local animal rescue as part of an alternative educational program.
While comedy comes from their quirky offbeat personalities and the unique setting of “high school at the animal rescue,” the series will also have heart - as working with animals helps them deal with their personal issues with friends and at home.
The production stars Izabella Alvarez (“Euphoria,” “The Casagrandes”).
Wild Life will employ approximately 80 New Mexico crew members, 7 New Mexico guest actors, and approximately 250 New Mexico background talent.
