The television series “Roswell,” produced by Warner Bros.Television / NM Talent Inc., will begin principal photography of Season 2 mid-August through January in Santa Fe, Las Vegas, Albuquerque, and Madrid, New Mexico State Film Office Director Todd Christensen announced today.
The production will employ 260 New Mexico crew members and 2,550 state residents in extra and background roles.
Carina Adly MacKenzie (“The Originals”) wrote the pilot script and serves as executive producer along with Julie Plec (“The Vampire Diaries,” “The Originals”), Justin Falvey (“The Americans”), Darryl Frank (“The Americans”), Lawrence Bender (“Pulp Fiction”) and Kevin Kelly Brown (“Roswell”). It is based on the Roswell High book series, written by Melinda Metz.
After reluctantly returning to her hometown of Roswell, New Mexico, the daughter of undocumented immigrants discovers a shocking truth about her teenage crush who is now a police officer: He’s an alien who has kept his unearthly abilities hidden his entire life. She protects his secret as the two reconnect and begin to investigate his origins, but when a violent attack and long-standing government cover-up point to a greater alien presence on Earth, the politics of fear and hatred threaten to expose him and destroy their deepening romance.
