Neighbors have reported seeing bright lights, trailers and South Fayette police at the former Mayview State Hospital on Mayview Road this week, on the border of Upper St. Clair. The reason for all the commotion? There's a TV pilot filming there.
The pilot is for a drama on A&E called Those Who Kill. Actress Chloe Sevigny is one of the leads. You may recognize her because she won a Golden Globe for her role on HBO’s Big Love and was nominated for an Oscar for Boys Don’t Cry.
The project, an adaptation of a Danish crime series based on the books by Elsebeth Egholm, centers on a female police detective and a forensic psychiatrist on the hunt for serial killers.
Crews are scheduled to film through Dec. 18.
Mayview State Hospital closed its doors for good at the end of 2008. The state sold the property in 2010. The owners plan to build a new business park.
