‘Dog’ finds new home at CMT

Chapman's new series on country cabler to debut next year

After Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman’s longstanding run on A&E ended in May, his reality TV career is being rekindled on CMT.

Country-centric cabler has ordered 10 hourlong episodes of “Dog” from Ben Silverman’s Electus shingle and will bow the reality skein in either spring or summer.

Series will feature a broader scope than A&E’s “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” which was canceled this spring after negotiations for a ninth season with the cabler fell through. CMT’s “Dog” follows Chapman and wife Beth as they help struggling bail bondsmen and bounty hunters improve their businesses in America’s heartland.

The Chapmans will also exec produce.

“This series is a game-changer for CMT,” said Jayson Dinsmore, exec VP of CMT’s development and programming. “We were aggressive in our pursuit of a show featuring Dog and Beth, one of the most bankable teams in television history.”

“Dog” was created by the Chapmans through their shingle, Entertainment by Bonnie and Clyde. Along with the Chapmans and Silverman, Chris Grant and Jimmy Fox will exec produce for Electus, and Jayson Dinsmore for CMT.
