NBC Universal signed a 10-year lease with Garcia Realty and Development for Albuquerque production space in June 2019. It used to be an empty warehouse, but now it has two sound stages, an office and a mill.
“We are proud of what we have achieved through our venture with the Garcia family, expanding our production profile across the state and contributing to the continued development of our talented New Mexico workforce. I’m looking forward to it, “said NBCUniversal’s Global Productions Foreign Affairs.
According to state economic analysis, NBCUniversal needs to provide more than 800 jobs per year.
This summer, “MacGruber” based on the sketch of “Saturday Night Live” will start shooting at the facility until August. The comedy series will be starring Will Forte, Mickey Rourke, Kristen Wiig and Ryan Phillippe.
MacGruber employs approximately 225 local crew members and 61 local actors and stunt players. About 850 New Mexicans also have the opportunity to become background actors.
