*Tyler Perry’s concern for a missing persons case in Florida will bring him to ID channel’s “Deadline: Crime With Tamron Hall.”

The filmmaker will appear in the Season 5 on Sept. 3, according to Page Six.

Perry will look into the case of Terrance Williams, who suddenly disappeared from Naples, Fla., in 2004. Another man, Felipe Santos, went missing around the same time. Both were seen interacting with the same former sheriff’s deputy, Steve Calkins, following traffic incidents.

Calkins has said he dropped both off at area convenience stores. The cold case had no leads until 2012, when it was covered by Investigation Discovery, after which Perry offered a $100,000 bounty for information.

It’s hard for me to talk about the first 22 years of my life — not because I’m uncomfortable with my past, but because it’s not the sort of thing most people want to hear about. The multiple sexual assaults and domestic violence, the drugs I used to numb myself to my reality (I’ve been clean, should you wonder, for well over a decade), the number of times I got within a hair

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

The Oxygen Channel Is Becoming A True-Crime, All The Time Network

Now, the last remaining sliver of Oxygen’s former programming schedule is “Snapped,” which has been wearing in its “re-cre” formula over 20 seasons, dramatically recreating murders. Some of the show’s successes may have something to do with its unexpected subject material: “Snapped” is all about women killers, or suspected killers, spinning from them salacious tales of adultery, greed, fear and revenge when statistics show that women are overwhelmingly victims of domestic violence, not its perpetrators. It’s been a longtime hit for the network, and it’s not going anywhere, at least as long as women continue harming their husbands, boyfriends, abusers that share one or neither of those labels, and, sometimes, children.
