A&E Brings Back Bounty Hunting, But Not The Chapmans

AETV is bringing back a Bounty Hunter to it’s lineup, but not the one you probably know.  This new show called “Akil The Fugitive Hunter” is a mix of documentary and animation ?   Sounds dumb and the title looks to be similar to the original ‘Dog The Bounty Hunter” which was on AETV for 8 seasons.   The Chapman TV series “Dog And Beth: On The Hunt” ended two years ago.

Here is a preview of “Akin The Fugitive Hunter”  Will  or did you watch ?

We don’t understand why AETV never tried a spinoff of the original “Dog The Bounty Hunter”

A&E Network will premiere the new original docuseries “Akil the Fugitive Hunter,” which combines live-action and animation to chronicle the journey of modern-day superhero Akil Muhammad as he tracks and captures some of the most elusive criminals in Los Angeles in order to keep his community safe. Narrated by actor and activist Wood Harris (“The Wire”), the 10 episode half-hour series features original animation from influential animator Carl Jones (“Black Dynamite”)  “Akil the Fugitive Hunter” premieres Thursday, July 13 at 10 PM ET/PT with back-to-back episodes on A&E Network.
