Dateline: Breaking Bad, Albuquerque
In early 2004, then Albuquerque mayor Martin Chavez banned the television show “Cops” from filming more episodes in the city, saying it made the city look “horrible” and that it was having a negative impact on tourism in the city.
Nearly a decade later, the city is fully embracing the cult-like fans of the AMC series “Breaking Bad” and the tourism dollars that they bring to the local economy. This time, the positives economics outweigh any negative association that might come with the fictional story of Walter Walter, a high school chemistry teacher-turned-methamphetamine kingpin. The economic affects of the show goes well beyond tourism, as New Mexico offers tax incentives as enticements to future productions to the state. As a result, Albuquerque has developed business and a labor force to support the film industry, providing much needed jobs
As the final season of ‘Breaking Bad’ comes to a close, anxious fans desperately wait to see what will become of Walter White. In the real world, however, the show has taken it’s host city—Albuquerque—by storm.
Burqueños, as the locals are known, embrace the show because unlike “Cops” it depicts the duality of Albuquerque - a land of incredible natural beauty, dramatic vistas and good people in addition to showcasing some of the less positive aspects of the Duke City and some of it’s residents.
