Back in September, TV crews set up shop at two Nanuet businesses. Investigation Discovery channel was filming an episode at the Nanuet Restaurant and the Flower Peddler. They were there for just one day.
“The show is called Stalked. We’re filming the third season on Investigation Discovery right now,” said Melissa Kovner of Atlas Media Corp. “It’s a recreation drama show, (based off of true events).” The reenactments are also to raise awareness about the issues of stalking and anti-stalking legislation across the country.
“It’s about a waitress that gets stalked in the restaurant,” said Chamberlain. “They contacted me. We’re closed on Mondays so it worked out perfectly."
The 30-minute episode 'Toxic Love' airs Wednesday night at 9 p.m. According to ID's website, here's a synopsis of the episode:
Robin is a friendly waitress who catches the eye of a handsome customer. But after they begin a relationship, his twisted need for control bubbles to the surface. Now, Robin must find a way to escape a boyfriend who is hell-bent on destroying her.
This was the first time Nanuet Restaurant Owner Mary Chamberlain has allowed filming at her restaurant. Check out this Patch article to hear more from the people involved the day of the filming.
After the filming, ID reached out to Nanuet Flower Peddler owner Glenn Weiser asking to film an episode of Frenemies at his Pearl River home. They filmed yesterday, Tuesday and the episode will air in March, said Weiser.
