Dog the Bounty Hunter & Wife Beth Chapman Announce New TV Show
It's official! Duane “Dog” Chapman and wife Beth are returning to television amid her battle with cancer.
The famous couple, who shot to fame on “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” will star in “Dog's Most Wanted,” an unscripted series for WGN America.
The show, set to start production in early 2019, will follow "The Dirty Dozen,” a team of bounty hunters who will support Dog and Beth as they look for some of the most wanted criminals in the country.
Dog and Beth shared the news on social media, both posting the message, “We're back! #DogPound meet @wgnamerica an exceptional network who heard your Plea to bring us back.”
Neither mentioned Beth's cancer diagnosis. In late November, she was rushed to a hospital after developing a blockage in her throat. After emergency surgery, she learned her throat cancer had returned.
Last month, Dog told In Touch that the cancer was “incurable.”

He emphasized that she'll fight “every step of the way.”
While he is praying for her, he admitted, “I cry all the time. I think I'm in a bad dream and I need to wake up. People keep saying to me, 'Dog, are you okay?' But I'm not the one who's sick. I am going to be right here with her.”
