"Harboring a fugitive? They'll come to get you next," he assures the folks on 'Dog the Bounty Hunter' (Wed., 10PM ET on A&E). And Dog knows what he's talking about, so you'd better listen up!
Watch the video after the jump.
Apparently, in 1995, Krutonug introduced himself to Dog and, believing Dog's life and work would make a great film or TV show, signed papers for exclusive rights. According to the court papers, Krutonog developed the show between 1995 and 2003. And to get permission to produce and air the show, A&E agreed to pay Boris Krutonog as a co-executive producer for the duration of the program. Dan Silberman, the spokesperson for the network, said he could not comment at this time.
The show involves Chapman and his crew (which includes his fifth wife Beth and some of his kids) chasing down bail jumpers in Hawaii and other states. He previously had gotten in trouble with the Mexican government for his actions (bounty hunting is illegal in that country).
When I think of Dog the Bounty Hunter, I tend to think of the satire done on an episode of South Park when Cartman played Dog (loved it when Cartman parodied the philosophical rhetoric of Chapman which he does while taking prisoners to jail). Reruns will begin on A&E on June 25th with original episodes starting a few weeks later.
And the good luck for Duane "Dog" Chapman and his acquaintances continues. Back in November of 2007 his A&E show Dog the Bounty Hunter was halted after some pretty racist comments he made to his son were publicized. Now, it looks like one of his sidekicks is in hot water for something else that came out in public.
Last Friday, Tim Chapman (no relation to Duane Chapman) turned himself into Honolulu authorities after a shopping center security guard found the reality star naked in his truck allegedly performing a lewd act. Once discovered, the guard asked Chapman to put on his clothes and get out of the truck. Instead, Chapman put on his clothes, started the truck and drove away, nearly hitting the security guard in the process. Police are investigating whether or not to charge Tim for his actions.
This list therefore is dedicated to the women of reality TV that make being bad look oh so good. And no, Omarosa Stallworth-whatever is NOT on the list. I'll explain why after the jump.
Last week Adam reported that charges had been dropped against Dog the Bounty Hunter star Duane "Dog" Chapman, his son Leland, and work partner Tim, in a case involving illegal detention that took place in Mexico. Well, it looks like Dog and his bounty hunter friends aren't out of the woods yet.
According to AETV.com criminal prosecutors have filed an appeal to overturn the decision of the Puerto Vallarta First Criminal Court. According to Mexican legal law rulings against the prosecution are generally appealed as a matter of principle. However, despite these proceedings, the cancellation of the original arrest warrant for Duane and his posse still stands.
This all stems from a 2003 incident where Dog captured Max Factor heir and convicted rapist Andrew Luster in the Mexican resort town. He originally spent three days in a Mexican jail for that capture.
Today on TV Squad Daily:
- The Spice Girls might be regretting letting the public choose a city to add to their reunion tour.
- Simon Cowell is making a movie based on what life is like for contestants on American Idol.
- Duane "Dog" Chapman may finally be free of legal drama!
This week, the First Criminal Court in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico dismissed charges against Duane "Dog" Chapman, who was arrested in 2003 on charges of illegal detention after capturing Max Factor heir Andrew Luster. The arrest eventually led to the A&E series Dog the Bounty Hunter.
Last September, Mexican authorities requested Chapman, his son Leland and his work partner Tim Chapman (no relation) be extradited to Mexico to face charges of leaving the country instead of staying for their court date. Chapman has said in interviews that they left the country on the advice of their legal counsel.

Thank God You're Here (Mon., 9PM ET, NBC) series premiere
Confession: I miss Whose Line Is It Anyway? What can I say, I like improv. That's why I'm excited for the premiere of this new improv show, hosted by David Alan Grier. Four celebs don costumes and play out scenes they know nothing about. In the first episode, Wayne Knight is a medical quack, Bryan Cranston a randy rock star, Joel McHale a clueless archaelogist and Jennifer Coolidge a ditzy pageant queen. Then, judge Dave Foley crowns one the best performer of the night.
Dog the Bounty Hunter (Tue., 9PM ET, A&E) 4th season premiere
Much happened to Duane "Dog" Chapman in 2006. Last May, he married business partner Beth a day after daughter Barbara died in a car crash. In September, he was arrested for bounty hunting in Mexico, where it is illegal. His request not to be extradited was denied, so he too will have his day in court. Despite all of this, Dog is back and better than ever. In the premiere, he personally takes on the case of a female fugitive after learning she shares the same birthdate as his late daughter.
Three top A&E reality series, Dog the Bounty Hunter, Gene Simmons Family Jewels and Driving Force will kick off new seasons in April.
The second season of Gene Simmons Family Jewels kicks off April 1 with two back-to-back episodes starting at 9:00 p.m. In "Gene's Big Mouth," Gene meets his newly-adopted infant son for the first time. In the second episode, "Face Off," Gene and his wife Shannon both undergo cosmetic surgery at the same time.
To say the least, this past year has been insane for Duane "Dog" Chapman, star of A&E's reality series Dog the Bounty Hunter. His eldest daughter was killed in a car accident right before his wedding, and later he was arrested on charges of illegal detention along with his son Leland and his work partner Tim Chapman stemming from their capture of convicted rapist and Max Factor heir Andrew Luster in Mexico in 2003. The Constitutional Hearing, which began on December 22 in Guadalajara, Mexico, will start up again in January (the courts are closed for the holidays).
A&E will air a one-hour special, The Year of the Dog, that will look back on the past year in the life of the Chapmans, including the aftermath of Dog's arrest. The special airs at 9pm on January 2.
