The production will employ 260 New Mexico crew members, three New Mexico actors and approximately 3,000 New Mexico background talent.

Based on the graphic novel by Brian Ralph, the subversive dark comedy “Daybreak” finds 17-year-old high school outcast Josh searching for his missing girlfriend Sam in post-apocalyptic Glendale, Calif. Joined by a ragtag group of misfits including a pyromaniac 12-year-old Angelica and Josh’s former high school bully Wesley, now turned pacifist samurai, Josh tries to stay alive amongst the horde of Mad Max-style gangs (evil jocks, cheerleaders turned Amazon warriors), zombie-like creatures called Ghoulies, and everything else this brave new world throws at him.
