Incentives Scorecard: New Mexico Beckons Production

With diverse mountain and desert locations and 360 days of sunshine annually, New Mexico has hosted films like “A Million Ways to Die in the West” and “Lone Survivor.” But TV series have been the state’s stock-in-trade recently, with shows like “Longmire” and “Breaking Bad” spinoff “Better Call Saul” lured by incentives as high as 30%. The regular work has created an extensive production infrastructure.
