TV drama series centers on "dangerous female felons"
Upcoming television series Killer Women, produced by ABC Studios will begin production in Albuquerque, NM, and the surrounding areas in mid-September, New Mexico Film Office Director Nick Maniatis announced Monday.
The production will employ over 150 New Mexico crew members and over 250 New Mexico actors and extras.
"We have had a banner year for filming in Albuquerque and we are thrilled to add ABC's television show, Killer Women, to the incredible list of productions that have filmed here," said Mayor Richard J. Berry. "Television productions are extremely important, because they keep Albuquerque film crews working for longer periods, showcase our city and become a more permanent fixture in the community."
Killer Women is created and written by Hannah Shakespeare ("The Raven," "The Whole Truth"). Shakespeare will also serve as an executive producer alongside Ed Zuckerman ("Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," "JAG"), Martin Campbell ("Last Resort," "Casino Royale") and Ben Silverman ("The Office," "Ugly Betty").
Starring Tricia Helfer ("Battlestar Galactica," "Green Lantern: First Flight"), Marc Blucas ("Knight and Day," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"), Michael Trucco ("Next," "Battlestar Galactica"), Alex Fernandez ("The Bridge," "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen") and Marta Milans ("Shame," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit"), "Killer Women" is the story of a lone woman in a man's world. Texas Ranger Molly Parker uses her crack investigative skills and feminine intuition to nail the state's most dangerous female felons.
