Dog and Beth: On the Hunt, the new CMT reality show from former Dog the Bounty Hunter stars Dog, Beth and Leland Chapman will premiere Sunday, April 21 at 8pm ET/PT on CMT.
And this time, the trio leaves Hawaii behind to help fledgling and struggling bail bondsmen across America capture some the countryâ€™s most dangerous criminals.
In each of the seriesâ€™ 11 episodes, the Chapmans travel to a different city, teaming up with local agencies to improve their business practices â€” from bond writing to tactical training to the latest in non-lethal weaponry â€” then lead them on pulse-pounding missions to hunt down criminals on the lam.
In a statement released by CMT, Duane â€śDogâ€ť Chapman said, â€śFilming 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. We are meeting with the families of heroes who at times lay their lives down to protect fellow Americans.â€ť
â€śCMT gives Dog a chance to do what he loves best – catching fugitives and changing lives while showing AmericaÂ that bail agents are needed much more than they realize,â€ť Beth Chapman added.
In an interview earlier this year, Beth told me why Leland is the only Chapman child featured on Dog and Beth: On the Hunt. â€śThe focal point of the show is our relationship â€” and our relationship with Leland, because Leland wants to stay with his dad,â€ť she explained. â€śHe wants to be the one staying right here and doing what he does. And so we were really happy about that.â€ť
â€śBabyâ€ť Lyssa Chapman recently tweeted hints about a possible collaboration with Real World creators Bunim/Murray for a new reality show based on her upcoming biography Walking On Eggshells â€” though the tweets appear to have been removed.
