Disney+ series National Treasure commences filming in New Mexico

The television series National Treasure has landed in New Mexico. Principal photography for the project took place in and around Santa Fe. This new live-action Disney+ Original series is an expansion of the National Treasure movie franchise. The show focuses on a charismatic adventurer, who seeks to uncover the truth about her family's mysterious past while saving a lost Pan-American treasure in the process.



“We welcome another Disney+ production and this globally-recognised property to New Mexico, along with its all-star production team and talent,” says New Mexico State Film Office Director Amber Dodson.


The series is set to star: Lisette Olivera, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Zuri Reed, Jordan Rodrigues, Antonio Cipriano, Jake Austin Walker and Lyndon Smith. Meanwhile, Jerry Bruckheimer, Cormac and Marianne Wibberley, Jonathan Littman, and Kristie-Anne Reed executive produce the series alongside Rick Muirragui, who also serves as a writer.



Jon Turteltaub – who directed National Treasure and its sequel National Treasure: Book of Secrets – returns as executive producer, while Mira Nair is directing and executive producing. The Disney Branded Television series National Treasure will be produced by ABC Signature, part of Disney Television Studios.


It is anticipated that the production will employ around 152 New Mexico crew and approximately 160 New Mexico background talent. Dodson emphasises: “New Mexico is a place for major television series such as National Treasure, and the economic impact to the state is great – television series are on the ground for months at a time, employ our residents, and utilise local businesses of all kinds.”


New Mexico Film Office recently announced that two new projects were commencing principal photography in Albuquerque. Nickelodeon Studios are behind the Paramount+ original live-action series The Loud House. Meanwhile, Warner Bros. Pictures are working on the hybrid live-action/animated feature-length film Coyote vs. ACME, which is based on the misadventures of Looney Tunes’ self-proclaimed ‘super genius,’ Wile E. Coyote.
