'Bounty Hunter' will star 'Dog'



Bounty hunter Duane "Dog" Chapman is starring in a new reality series about his work. Chapman, who tracked down convicted rapist and Max Factor heir Andrew Luster in Mexico last year, will be featured in Dog the Bounty Hunter, a 12-part series to air on the A&E network.

A&E promises to depict the "wild-and-woolly" life of Chapman and his wife and business partner, Beth Smith. Chapman was hailed as a hero for capturing Luster, who had jumped bail before being convicted of drugging and raping three women.

A California judge later ruled that Chapman was not entitled to any of the $1 million bail that Luster had forfeited.

Many in the bail-recovery industry say Chapman's tactics create a bad-boy image that isn't representative of them.
