The New Mexico Film Office in Santa Fe has announced the series “The Unsettling” produced by AwesomenessTV will begin principal photography late April through the beginning of June in Santa Fe and Lamy.
“We’re proud to welcome another series to New Mexico,” said Film Office Director Nick Maniatis. “With strong infrastructure and enhanced incentives in place, New Mexico is able to support productions of all sizes and genres.”
The production will employ 60 New Mexico crew members, 10 New Mexico actors and approximately 50 New Mexico background talent.
Starring Holly Taylor (“The Americans,” “The Night Shift”), Tequan Richmond (“General Hospital,” “Cold Case,” “All Night”) and An-Li Bogan (“Night of the Pawn”), the series is directed by Chris Grismer (“Designated Survivor,” “Vampire Diaries,” “Freakish”) and produced by Jordan Levin (“My Dead Ex,” “Versus”), Brett Bouttier (“Zac & Mia”, “t@gged”) Shelley Zimmerman (“Zac and Mia,” “t@gged”), and Brin Lukens (“Guidance,” “Freakish”).
“The Unsettling” is the story of Becca, a 16-year-old girl who arrives at her new foster home located in a remote area. Her foster siblings are less than welcoming but none more so than the 13-year-old biological son of their foster parents. Becca tries to keep to herself and adjust to her new home, but strange things start to happen around her and Becca is uncertain about who or what is responsible.
