“DOG AND BETH: ON THE HUNT” RETURNS THIS SUMMER WITH AN ALL-NEW SEASON
New Episodes To Begin June 14 on CMT
NASHVILLE – May 22, 2014 – The world’s most notorious bounty hunters, Dog and Beth Chapman, are back! Their hit television show, DOG AND BETH: ON THE HUNT debuts an all-new season on CMT on Saturday, June 14 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. In the new adrenaline-filled episodes, Dog and Beth, along with Leland and Dakota, will arrive in a different city each week to motivate, inspire and educate local bondsmen on every aspect of the business while tracking down America’s most dangerous criminals. With a genuine affability and openness, along with an uncanny intuitiveness, they spend considerable time parlaying their knowledge and skills to bounty-hunter brethren on how to investigate more efficiently and safely.
In the first all-new episode, Dog and Beth head to Jackson, Mich., to round up fugitives with their old friend Jeff Kirkpatrick at Lodise Bail Bonds. While in Jackson, Dog and Beth help train aspiring bounty hunter Dion Shepherd, a young man striving for a future more promising than the heartbreak he’s witnessed on the streets of Detroit. In the first of a gritty two-part episode, weapons are drawn, emotions escalate to an all-time high and even Dog is pushed to his limit when an altercation in the streets gets physical.
Dog and Beth are an iconic television duo and the most celebrated bounty hunters in the business today. DOG AND BETH: ON THE HUNT premiered on CMT in April 2013 and through its first five weeks on air ranked as CMT’s top series, growing substantially in Live +3, averaging over one million total viewers. In addition to eight successful seasons of their prior hit reality series, the diverse couple utilizes their experience and influence to help reform the industry through training, regulation and certification for bounty hunters. Dog Chapman is the author of the No. 1 New York Times bestselling book “You Can Run But You Can't Hide” and his follow-up New York Times bestselling memoir “Where Mercy Is Shown, Mercy Is Given.” The pair is frequently asked to comment on high-profile criminal cases in the country.
