SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The USA Network’s television pilot “Stanistan,” starring Zack Gilford of “Friday Night Lights,” is set to start filming in New Mexico.

New Mexico Film Office Director Nick Maniatis said Tuesday that production will begin in Santa Fe at the end of the month and continue through the middle of October.

Officials say the production will employ at least 100 New Mexico crew members, 15 New Mexico actors and around 400 local extras.

“Stanistan,” a drama, takes audiences behind the fortified walls of the U.S. Embassy in an Afghan-like South Asian hot spot.

Jennifer Carpenter of the Showtime drama series “Dexter” also stars in the show.
