Duane Chapman will go to the American heartland to help fellow bail bondsmen and bounty hunters struggling with their business of catching fugitives on the lam. Chapman is returning to "Dog the Bounty Hunter" on CMT after A&E canceled the show in May. The show, tentatively called "DOG," has been greenlit for 10 one-hour episodes.

DOG showcases the next chapter in the lives of Chapman and his wife Beth as they concentrate more on the bail industry as a whole, helping other mom-and-pop bail bond agencies as they face extinction due to bad legislation, untrained or ineffective bounty hunters.

Production begins early next year for a spring/summer premiere. The family will also serve as executive producers on the series, which comes via Ben Silverman's studio Electus.

"This series is a game changer for CMT," Jayson Dinsmore, EVP, development and programming CMT, said of "Dog." "We were aggressive in our pursuit of a show featuring Dog and Beth, one of the most bankable teams in television history. We couldn't be happier to partner with Electus and Dog and Beth as they move forward on the next chapter."

DOG was created Chapman and his wife Beth through their production company, Entertainment By Bonnie and Clyde.
