Dog the Bounty Hunter to Front New Series


Bounty hunter Duane “Dog” Chapman is getting a new series on WGN America, Dog’s Most Wanted, which marks the first unscripted show for the network in more than five years.

Produced by Dorsey Pictures, Dog’s Most Wanted will follow Dog and his elite team of professionals, The Dirty Dozen, in pursuit of a “bucket list” of most-wanted fugitives.

Dog came to fame in Dog the Bounty Hunter, which aired over 300 episodes in ten years. He serves as an executive producer on the new series, alongside his wife Beth and Chris Dorsey (Building Alaska) and Matt Assmus of Dorsey Pictures, a Red Arrow Studios company.

“America has been captivated by Dog, Beth and their dramatic true-crime experiences for over a decade,” said Gavin Harvey, president of WGN America. “In this brand-new series, millions of Dog and Beth fans will join them on bigger hunts, pursuing more dangerous criminals, with a supporting cast of tough-as-nails crime fighters.”

“Crime in America is skyrocketing! Criminals are finding it easier to avoid the system,” said Dog. “With more and more dangerous criminals running the streets, the time couldn’t be better for the world’s greatest network to bring back the world’s greatest bounty hunter. Fugitives beware!”
