The “Going to Jackson” episode of CMT’s “Dog and Beth: On the Hunt” will air at 8 p.m. ET Sunday, May 12.
JACKSON, MI – “An urgent call from Agent J motivates Dog and Beth to travel to Jackson, Michigan to help bondsman Leo Urban track down and apprehend a $500,000 fugitive bond. It’s a game of cat and mouse as the Chapmans work with Leo and his crew to track down this elusive and dangerous fugitive.”
That’s how CMT is describing the upcoming episode, titled “Going to Jackson,” of “Dog and Beth: On the Hunt,” which will detail the Chapmans search for Ricky Wheeldon in October 2012.
The episode will air at 8 p.m. ET, Sunday, May 12 on CMT (Dish ch. 166, DirecTV 327 and Comcast Jackson 58).
The Chapmans, at the request of Urban, who owns Leo’s Bail Bonds in Mason, spent several weeks in the Jackson area trying to track down Wheeldon, who fled during a trial and was on the lam for five months. Wheeldon was eventually apprehended by Michigan State Police on Oct. 24, but Dog and Beth say they provided important information to aid authorities in locating him.
Dog, Beth and Leland Chapman returned to Jackson in late November to attend Wheeldon’s sentencing. While in town, they made an appearance at the Michigan Theatre, where they mingled with fans and answered questions.
I’ll be leading a live chat in the comments section of this story during the one-hour episode on Sunday evening. Readers are encouraged to share their observations, thoughts and opinions on the show.
Who knows? Maybe even Dog or Beth will pop in to say hello.
