Officials say the production will employ approximately 375 New Mexico crew members and 200 actors from the state.

Starring Naperville-native Bob Odenkirk (he was born in Berwyn), the series follows Jimmy McGill, who eventually becomes meth lord Walter White's lawyer Saul Goodman on "Breaking Bad."
