Dog and Beth Chapman, the world’s most notorious bounty hunters, are back with a vengeance in an all-new, 10-episode series on CMT. Premiering in April, the show’s working title is Dog.
Crisscrossing the U.S. for the first time, the couple will be joined by their son Leland to set ablaze the industry they made famous by working with struggling bail bondsman companies to hunt down America’s most dangerous criminals together. The hour-long series also reveals a never-before-seen look into the couple’s stressful strategizing process, Leland’s expert use of cutting-edge equipment and the evolving family dynamic that have made the Chapmans fan favorites.
“Bail bondsman and bounty hunter have become household names, and so has the danger surrounding them,” Duane “Dog” Chapman said. “It’s a very dangerous job, and my show over the last nine years has influenced many to be in this industry that I may have made look easy. So some may find themselves over their heads and ill-trained for the job. This show on CMT gives us the opportunity to get out on the road and help save a dying breed. ‘Big or small, we’ll get them all.’”
Besides the eight season success of their highly-rated reality show, Dog the Bounty Hunter, he wrote the No. 1 New York Times bestselling book You Can Run but You Can’t Hide and followed it up with Where Mercy Is Shown, Mercy Is Given.
The original TV series captured an audience of millions into the unique day-to-day work of Dog and his team. In this next chapter of their story, the Chapmans will address new personal and professional conflicts through teamwork, adrenaline-filled arrests and a philosophy of hope and second chances, all while showing their contemporaries a few new tricks along the way.
Dog was created by Duane and Beth Chapman through their production company, Entertainment by Bonnie and Clyde.
