Where "Dog the Bounty Hunter," which was canceled by A&E in May after eight seasons, focused on the Chapmans' own bail-bonds business, the new series will follow the Chapmans as they "journey into the American heartland to help fellow bail bondsmen and bounty hunters struggling with their business of catching fugitives on the lam," according to CMT.
The show, which has been greenlit for 10 one-hour episodes, begins production early next year for a spring/summer premiere. The Chapmans will also serve as executive producers on the series, which comes via Ben Silverman's studio Electus.
"This series is a game changer for CMT,” Jayson Dinsmore, EVP, development and programming CMT, said of "Dog." “We were aggressive in our pursuit of a show featuring Dog and Beth, one of the most bankable teams in television history. We couldn't be happier to partner with Electus and Dog and Beth as they move forward on the next chapter.”
