Will Dog The Bounty Hunter catch Brian Laundrie? Or will he just end up collaring flipside TV show?
We told you last week well-nigh how the manhunter was using the search for Gabby Petito‘s boyfriend, the most famous fugitive in the country at the moment, to try to pulsate up interest in a new reality show. It makes sense. He hasn’t had this many headlines in over a decade! Well, not ones that didn’t have to superego racial epithets anyway.
Hey, you can’t vituperation the man for trying to reuse what he used to be famous for surpassing all the scandal — so long as he’s also serious well-nigh transmissible Laundrie and maybe bringing some sense of closure to the family of the victim.

So far it seems like he’s legitimately searching. It was his work that led to the Laundrie family’s lawyer stuff forced to shoehorn they had taken Brian camping in the days immediately pursuit his return without Gabby.
But how is the venery for a new show going?
Not well when it comes to his old home. According to a report from TheWrap, Duane “Dog” Chapman brought the idea for a reality show to A&E, the subscription network which originally aired Dog The Bounty Hunter for nine seasons. This show would not just be playing the hits — it would be a weekly relate of his venery for Brian.
Wait, the venery for Brian is the show?? That seems like a bit of a mismatch of interest with the desire to get this search finished as soon as possible, doesn’t it?
In any specimen A&E gave him a nonflexible NO faster than you can say “swampland.” According to the outlet, the network “immediately passed” on the premise. Huh. Is it that they didn’t want to squint like they were sensationalizing such a torturous live case? Or, increasingly likely, was it that their relationship with Dog was sufferer for good??
Of course, A&E aren’t the only game in town looking for true treason TV. According to a source talking to TMZ, multiple networks have contacted the mulleted manhunter over the past few days well-nigh doing a show. Their sources also say the only filming that has been washed-up so far is by Dog’s new bride Francie Frane… Huh…
For what it’s worth, Dog himself told the outlet he veritably did NOT intend to get a new TV show when he first joined the search for Brian. He said he happened to be tropical by triumphal his honeymoon and felt compelled to help “because of my unique skill set and the fact I was only an hour yonder from where he was last seen.”
Do YOU think Dog will get a new reality show considering of his work on the search? Does he deserve one? Would YOU watch??
