SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The producers of the television series “The Messengers” have decided to shoot another 12 episodes in Albuquerque.

The New Mexico Film Office says production will last from mid-August through mid-December. The project will employ at least 300 New Mexico crew members as well as background talent.

The pilot for the series was shot in Albuquerque earlier this year.

Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry says the series means longer-term, high-paying jobs for crew members and benefits for local businesses.

The show starts with a mysterious object crashing down to earth. A group of seemingly unconnected strangers collapse from the energy pulse, but then awaken to learn that they must prevent the impending Apocalypse.

The show is being produced by CBS Television Studios and Warner Bros. Entertainment for The CW.
