New Mexico Film Office Director Nick Maniatis announced today that AwesomenessTV's premium series "t@gged," will start production on Season 3 in early August. Production will wrap mid-September in Albuquerque and Jemez.
"When you get picked up for another season, you know you're doing something right," said New Mexico Film Office Director Nick Maniatis."Our homegrown talent and our incredible landscapes are catalysts for bringing back another season to New Mexico."
The production will employ approximately 55 New Mexico crew members, 30 New Mexico principal actors and over 300 New Mexico background talent.

"In my opinion, the crew, the actors and the myriad of interesting locations and landscapes make New Mexico the most inspiring place to tell stories. As a New Mexico native who left Albuquerque to go to Los Angeles, the most rewarding experience is coming home to direct 't@gged' Season 3 with my New Mexican friends and long-time collaborators," said Director, Hannah Macpherson.
