WGN America has set Wednesday, September 4, 9/8c for the premiere of new unscripted bounty-hunting series Dog’s Most Wanted.
In the series, Duane “Dog” Chapman and the late Beth Chapman, and a ferocious team of hunters Dog calls “The Dirty Dozen”, go on a cross-country manhunt to track down a carefully curated list of Dog’s Most Wanted fugitives. In their personal lives, the series tackles the family’s most difficult fight as their beloved matriarch Beth Chapman bravely fights – and tragically loses – her battle with cancer. You can watch the trailer above.
“My wife is, was, and always will be the heart and soul of ‘Dog’s Most Wanted,’” said Duane “Dog” Chapman. “Beth wanted nothing more than for the show to go on, and I am so proud of the legacy that she left behind. She lived and died for this show, and she would be so proud of how hard we worked bringing these criminals to justice.”
WGN America will air a two-day marathon of Dog’s hit series Dog The Bounty Hunter on Tuesday, September 3 and 4, leading into the series premiere of Dog’s Most Wanted.
“Always the warrior, Beth Chapman bravely focused all of her energy into producing and participating in Dog’s Most Wanted, all while aggressively fighting a terminal illness,” the network said in its release announcing the premiere date. “Beth passed away on June 26, 2019 and is survived by her husband, children, stepchildren, countless grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.”
Duane “Dog” Chapman went from convicted felon who spent time in prison, to the world’s most sought after bounty hunter. Dog first came to prominence after pursuing and capturing FBI’s Most Wanted fugitive and Max Factor cosmetics heir Andrew Luster. He then became a household name with his hit TV series Dog the Bounty Hunter, which aired over 300 episodes in 10 years.
“WGN America is excited to share Dog’s and Beth’s latest and most exhilarating hunt with the world,” said Gavin Harvey, President of WGN America. “The Chapmans are beloved by millions of fans for their relentless pursuit of justice and loyalty to each other and their family. ‘Dog’s Most Wanted’ captures all of this in this riveting new series.”
Dog’s Most Wanted is produced by Dorsey Pictures, a Red Arrow Studios company, along with Entertainment by Bonnie and Clyde. Chris Dorsey (Building Alaska), and Matt Assmus serve as Executive Producers for Dorsey Pictures. Dog and the late Beth Chapman are Executive Producers for Bonnie & Clyde.
