Can't Keep A Good Dog Down

DOG THE BOUNTY HUNTER RETURNS TO A&E FOR SEASON 4 OF THE HIT REAL-LIFE SERIES

PREMIERES TUESDAY, APRIL 10th AT 9:00 PM ET/PT

New York, NY, April 2, 2007 � Last year was the Chinese calendar's Year of the Dog � and Duane "Dog" Chapman � the world's most famous bounty hunter - had enough drama to last him two lifetimes. Now, staring adversity in the face with his own freedom hanging in the balance, Dog is coming back with a vengeance to hunt down fugitives with his wife Beth and fearless posse in Season 4 of DOG THE BOUNTY HUNTER � A&E's highest-rated original series premiering Tuesday, April 10th at 9:00 PM ET/PT.

Last season a record number of loyal fans tuned in to see Dog and his posse hunt down fugitives in heart-pounding captures week after week. However, with one of Dog's most tumultuous years to date, viewers got more than they bargained for when they got an insider's look as the Chapman's personal life unfolded in front of the cameras. The nation saw dramatic events happen one after another to the Chapman family including: the passing of Beth's father, Dog and Beth's wedding, the tragic death of Dog's daughter Barbara, and the sudden arrest of Dog, Tim, and Leland on Mexican charges related to their apprehension of convicted serial rapist Andrew Luster.

Season 4 is shaping up to be just as captivating as Dog risks his life on two fronts: fighting the Mexican legal system for his freedom, and bringing dangerous criminals to justice. But as Dog says, "What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger."

Dog the Bounty Hunter is the crowned jewel of the A&E Real-Life series brand. Dog The Bounty Hunter Season 3 averaged 2.2 million total viewers per premiere episode, making it one of the greatest successes on cable. The two Dog the Bounty Hunter specials that premiered in 2006 delivered record setting numbers for the network. Dog & Beth's 2-hour wedding event "To Love and Cherish" as well as the one-hour "Dog: The Family Speaks" both delivered 4.5 million viewers each.

Dog the Bounty Hunter is produced by Hybrid Films for A&E Network. Lucas Platt and Rick Smigelski are the Series Producers. David Houts and Daniel Elias serve as the executive producers for Hybrid Films. Robert Sharenow and Neil Cohen serve as the A&E executive producers.

About Dog's Legal Case

Dog, Leland and Tim Chapman were taken into custody by U.S. Marshals in mid-September 2006 on an extradition request from Mexico due to charges stemming from their 2003 capture of serial rapist, Andrew Luster. Luster, the famed heir to the Max Factor cosmetics fortune, was convicted of drugging and raping three women over a four year span. During his trial in 2003, Luster fled the country, leading to an international manhunt. In June 2003, Dog and his team tracked the fugitive Luster in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where he was living under an alias, and seized him. Bounty hunting does not exist in Mexico, and Dog, Tim and Leland were arrested by the Mexican authorities, and released on bail. Charges are still pending against them in Mexico. Luster was handed over to the United States government by Mexican officials. He was subsequently found guilty and is currently serving a 124 year prison sentence. Dog, Leland and Tim are awaiting their extradition hearing and working to resolve their case in Mexico.
