ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Almost two years after the last "Breaking Bad" episode aired, film and television production in New Mexico is showing no signs of slowing.

AMC's "Better Call Saul," a Breaking Bad prequel, just wrapped up and NBC's "The Night Shift" is filming for its second season in Albuquerque.

A new Adam Sandler western production is set to begin and the state film office is set to announce a major movie production.

Albuquerque Studios chief operating officer Wayne Rauschenberger says New Mexico reputation as an attractive site for filming and the state's film tax breaks keep productions coming. In addition, he says productions can hire local crews.

Gabe Sachs, an executive producer for "The Night Shift," says actors also enjoy relative anonymity around the state and don't have to worry about paparazzis.
