Discovery Channel now filming ‘Crime’ in St. George

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Discovery Channel is bringing it back to 1950 — and using Staten Island to do it. 

The Ambassador Apartment Building in St. George serves as backdrop to the upcoming fifth season of the the network’s docu-series, “A Crime to Remember.” Cast and crew began filming at 5 a.m. Tuesday outside the building, which dates back to 1932. 

Crew blocked off the right-hand side of Fort Hill Circle, and the area in front of the building on Daniel Low Terrace, to make way for three vintage cars — one of them being a old-fashioned police car.

The area around and rooms inside Ambassador Apartments — including an alleyway behind the building and Fort Hill Circle — were used to film reenactments of historic crime on Tuesday. Sources couldn’t say if any local actors would be featured on the show but producers are attracted to the “old look” of the St. George area. 

The crew is set to

Patton Oswalt releases the cause of his wife’s death

Last April, true-crime writer Michelle McNamara, wife of comedian Patton Oswalt, died suddenly in her sleep. Now, Oswalt—who’s spoken movingly about his grief in the intervening year, and the difficulties in raising their daughter alone—has revealed the cause of his wife’s death: a combination of prescription medication and an undiagnosed heart condition.

In a statement to The Associated Press, Oswalt revealed the details of a coroner’s report received earlier today, which showed that McNamara died from an interaction between a condition that caused blockages in her arteries, and Xanax, Adderall, and the pain medication fentanyl. McNamara was 46.

According to Oswalt’s Twitter account, Investigation Discovery’s A Crime To Remember—on which McNamara was a frequent guest—tributed her with a dedication card in its season finale, which aired earlier this week.
