Netflix is buying a production studio… and that studio will be located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, of all places. At any rate, the company just announced that they are in the final stages of purchasing ABQ Studios. This is particularly exciting news because this is Netflix first purchase of a production studio!
Netflix is all about the original series… so this move seemed to be inevitable. As a matter of fact, Netflix will be spending $8 billion on original content this year alone. And the following original shows created by Netflix will be calling ABQ Studios home: Chambers, Messiah, and Daybreak.
Good news for Netflix… but even better new for Albuquerque. The city will see up to $1 billion in production over the next ten years while creating an additional 1,000 jobs per year. The city’s mayor and governor are calling this move and “economic win” for Albuquerque. And now that Netflix has their own studio, we’re expecting even better shows. Get your popcorn ready!
