At the Desk of: Kim Krawitz, Dateline ProducerMay 17, 201801:00
Kim Krawitz is the producer of this Friday's episode with Andrea Canning, The House on Pitch Pine Crescent. She usually works in upstate New York, but we caught up with her at her (guest) desk while she was in New York City finishing the report. (Kim's responses have been edited for length and clarity.)
Dateline: Kim, we know you’re producing this Friday’s Dateline. We have a few questions. How did you come across the case in this Friday’s report?
Kim Krawitz, Dateline Producer: So, my correspondent Andrea Canning is Canadian, and she actually used to cover that region where the story took place. She’d been following the story for about four years, and we were waiting till the trial was over.
Dateline: Without giving anything away, tell us a bit about the story.
Kim: Well, there were multiple murders in the same home, to the same family, over the course of four years.
Dateline: What was the most unusual location you filmed at for this episode?
Kim: Well, it’s not so unusual, but we don’t normally film out of the country. This was in Canada, so it was a little bit different.
Dateline: What is the one clue we should be on the lookout for?
Kim: Why a new pair of shoes were in the trash can.
Dateline: What’s the best thing about working on a story with Andrea Canning?
Kim: Well, she’s a hard worker. (But she also has a great wardrobe and does her own hair and makeup!)
