Film crews have started working in Los Alamos today on “Our Lady LTD,” at Main Gate Park, the airport, Los Alamos National Bank and DP Road, according to local officials.

The MGM Television series “Our Lady, LTD” will film through Tuesday, according to the Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce.

“Our Lady, LTD (Our Lady of Perpetual Grace)” is a 10-episode modern noir drama, produced by MGM Television, about a young grifter who attempts to prey upon a pastor who turns out to be far more dangerous than he suspects. The series stars Ben Kingsley as Pastor Byron Brown and Jimmi Simpson as the disgraced firefighter turned grifter.

Gold signs with black letters “LOCS” will be posted along NM 502, Trinity Drive and Central Avenue to direct film crew in vehicles of all sizes to the Los Alamos Main Gate Park, Los Alamos County Airport, DP Road and Los Alamos National Bank (LANB).

Today and Sunday are prep days at all locations.

Crews are expected to film Monday and Tuesday.

All locations will be vacated and restored on Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning, according to the Chamber of Commerce.

On Monday morning, filming will begin at the north parking lot of LANB. No public parking will be available in the north lot of LANB during this time. Film trucks will be parked in the alleyway north of the LANB parking lot.

Crews will move to the Los Alamos Airport property Monday afternoon, and are expected to continue filming at the airport on Tuesday morning.

Film trucks, generators, lights and other production equipment will be located near both film locations. Access to all business and residential driveways will remain clear.

Traffic control operations are scheduled for Monday morning at Knecht Street, between Central Avenue and Trinity Drive, between 6 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Traffic control operations are scheduled to be in effect at Airport Road, from NM 502 on Monday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., and continue Tuesday morning from 6 a.m. to about noon.

Los Alamos Police Department staff have been hired to supervise these traffic control operations, during which drivers can expect waits of 3-5 minutes.

Basecamp will be located at the Los Alamos Main Gate Park, adjacent to Entrada Business Park, north of NM 502. Film crew will park passenger vehicles at the vacant lot at 120 DP Road, recently purchased by affordable housing developer, Bethel Development, Inc.
