Oxygen’s Rod Aissa Talks ‘Criminal Confessions’ and the Network’s Transition to ‘Full Time True Crime’

When Emily Lambert was reported missing by Robert Early, investigators were alerted to a crime that might have escaped immediate attention had he not called. Was Early a concerned boyfriend? Or, was there much more to him than met the eye? While investigators questioned him and as he went from interviewee to prime suspect, Lambert’s 2 young daughters waited for word on the whereabouts of their mom. Emily Lambert’s parents immediately made the 8-hour drive to New Mexico, never imagining they would eventually be the ones to raise the two girls. Oxygen’s new series Criminal Confessions, which debuts Sunday, starts with an episode about Emily Lambert’s case. It examines the process by which police investigators question potential subjects, in a manner that elicits a confession deemed admissible in a courtroom.

NBCUniversal, Dick Wolf in Talks to Transform Oxygen Into Crime-Centric Channel (EXCLUSIVE)

NBCUniversal and prolific producer Dick Wolf are in discussions about turning the Oxygen cable channel into a crime-centric outlet anchored by Wolf’s Universal TV-produced drama series.

Sources cautioned that the discussions are still in the early stages and that a formal deal may not come together. It is understood that Wolf might wind up with a small equity stake in the revamped channel.

NBCUniversal declined to comment. A rep for Dick Wolf also declined comment.

The discussions are a sign that even the largest cable programmers are feeling the pressure when it comes to under-performing channel assets. Oxygen has been in a ratings slump with few buzzy series to draw attention. In primetime, the network is down 12% in adults 18-49 — and 13% in women 18-49 — from 2015, in Nielsen’s live-plus-seven ratings. Its average primetime draw is 228,000 total viewers, with 99,000

Trans Model Dominique Jackson Talks Childhood, Career And Getting Married On TV

Dominique Jackson is no wallflower. She’s been modeling for more than 20 years (with credits including Vogue España), and has had a dynamic life. That is to say: Dominique has seen it all. Her childhood was blemished with abuse and assault, but through the 13-year-long cleansing process of writing her autobiography, The Transsexual from Tobago, Dominique rose above the pain to be the self-possessed woman you’ve come to know on Oxygen’s Strut, a show about the first all-transgender modeling agency.

Now an LGBT and human rights activist as well as model, the Tobago born Dominique is full of wisdom. We spoke to her about her 18-year-relationship, the strains of balancing career and love, her tumultuous childhood, and what it meant to be one of the first-ever trans people to ever have a wedding ceremony on television.

You’ve been modeling for more than two decades. What unique challenges did you face
