AMERICA’S FAVORITE BOUNTY HUNTING TEAM HITS THE ROAD AS “DOG AND BETH: ON THE HUNT” PREMIERES SUNDAY, APRIL 21 ON CMT
LOS ANGELES – February 19, 2013 – The world’s most renowned bounty hunters, Dog and Beth Chapman, return to television in an all-new, 11-episode series, DOG AND BETH: ON THE HUNT, premiering Sunday, April 21 at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT on CMT. Dog and Beth, joined by their son Leland, will step outside their headquarters in Hawaii to unite with bail bondsmen from around the country as they hunt down some of America’s most dangerous criminals.
“Filming this show with CMT has given us a broader ability to reach our fans and serve our professional industry in a way no other bail agent ever could,” said Dog Chapman. “We are meeting with the families of heroes who at times lay their lives down to protect fellow Americans.”
“CMT gives Dog a chance to do what he loves best - catching fugitives and changing lives while showing America that bail agents are needed much more than they realize,” said Beth Chapman.
Each week, the Chapmans will arrive in a different city to work with local bondsman offices and their team of bounty hunters. Upon arrival, the Chapmans will bring their years of experience to every aspect of the business, from the writing of bonds to the implementation of tactical tracking and hi-tech device training. With their trademark no-holds barred candor and strong belief in second chances, the Chapmans will both motivate and inspire the local bounty hunters as they join forces on adrenaline-filled hunts, all the while showing their contemporaries a few new tricks along the way.
Dog and Beth are an iconic television duo and the most celebrated bounty hunters in the business today. In addition to eight successful seasons of their hit reality series, Dog Chapman is the author of the #1 New York Times bestselling book You Can Run But You Can't Hide and his follow-up memoir Where Mercy Is Shown, Mercy Is Given. DOG AND BETH: ON THE HUNT was created by Dog and Beth Chapman through their production company, Entertainment By Bonnie and Clyde. The series is executive-produced by Electus (Ben Silverman, Chris Grant and Jimmy Fox), Jeff Cvengros and CMT’s Jayson Dinsmore, Joe Livecchi and Eliot Goldberg.
