LOS ANGELES – March 27, 2013 – The last time fans saw Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman and Beth Chapman on television, their family was falling apart, particularly their relationship with their three kids. The break-up was devastating. The rift was so deep, it appeared as if the family may never speak, much less hunt together, again.
Now, just one week prior to the debut of the new series DOG AND BETH: ON THE HUNT, CMT will premiere a two-hour preview special that goes behind-the-scenes of their epic struggle. DOG AND BETH: THE PREVIEW SPECIAL premieres on Sunday, April 14 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CMT. The special will re-air throughout the next week on CMT and CMT.com as part of the countdown to the new series premiere.
Fifteen months have passed since Dog and Beth left television. The Chapmans found themselves deeply divided over the future of their family business. Through it all, they never stopped hunting and soon found themselves on a new and dangerous mission without the support of their children. DOG AND BETH: THE PREVIEW SPECIAL shows the dramatic struggles of a professional bounty-hunting team attempting to move on without crucial team members, a father and son both battling their own pride and the Chapman’s unwavering belief in second chances.
Dog and Beth are an iconic television duo and the most celebrated bounty hunters in the business today. In addition to eight successful seasons of their hit reality series, Dog Chapman is the author of the #1 New York Times bestselling book You Can Run But You Can’t Hide and his follow-up memoir Where Mercy Is Shown, Mercy Is Given. Their new series DOG AND BETH: ON THE HUNT premieres Sunday, April 21 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on CMT.
