Just as season five filming gets underway for A&E’s Dog, the Bounty Hunter, the actor who claims to be the show’s creator has launched a lawsuit against the producers.
Boris Krutonog has accused A&E, producer David Houts, and his companies Hybrid Films, Inc. and D&D Television Productions of supposedly breaching their contract with him by not paying him for season four of the show. According to Krutonog, the companies have neglected to pony up for his portion of DVD sales, syndication deals and more.
Also, according to Krutonog, he has been a victim of The Dog and Dog’s wife, Beth, as well. According to court papers, Krutonog has found himself a target of “abusive, violent and outrageous conduct,” as well as “episodes of psychotic behavior” on the part of the two stars.
Krutonog claims that he met Duane “Dog” Chapman and his wife Beth in 1995 and proceeded to create the show “Dog, the Bounty Hunter,” inspired by the Hawaii-based bondsman’s “colorful life and exploits.” According to Krutonog, as compensation for producing and airing the show, A&E had agreed to pay him as co-Executive Producer “for the life of the show.” Krutonog is seeking at least $5 million in owed salaries, royalties and other compensation. A&E is making no comment about the litigation.
The spotlight seems to love Dog Chapman, who has been in headlines when a bounty hunter bust in Mexico landed him in jail and again last year when his son released a tape of a phone conversation in which Dog made a racial slur against his son’s girlfriend, causing A&E to yank his show from the air last fall. Dog’s repeated apologies have led to A&E to bring the show back on air.
Dog the Bounty Hunter is currently in filming for season five and is scheduled to premiere Wednesday, July 16th at 9:00 PM (ET).

Dwayne Chapman (AKA: Dog, the Bounty Hunter) has been off-air long enough and is ready to come back! This summer he’s poised to be back on the streets with his crew and his cameras and get back to the business of putting away bad guys.
Fans of The Dog may remember that last fall his A&E hit show, Dog, the Bounty Hunter, was yanked off the air after a taped telephone conversation was leaked to the press by his son. In the conversation, Chapman made some racist comments about his son’s African-American girlfriend.
After the tape was released, Chapman wasted no time in apologizing for his actions, saying, “I am deeply disappointed in myself for speaking out of anger to my son and using such a hateful term…” Apparently the apology worked, as A&E decided that all was forgiven and The Dog could come back.
And finally we have some idea of when that will be. Word has it that we can look to see Dog, the Bounty Hunter back on air in late June, with reruns airing beginning June 25th and new episodes following soon after on A&E.

On October 31st, A&E yankedthe top-ranked reality series (and all repeats) from its lineup after the National Enquirer’s website published atelephone conversation between Chapman and his son, Tucker. On the tape, which Tucker had turned over to the Enquirer for a rumored $15,000, Chapman usedracialslurs when discussing Tucker’s new African-American girlfriend.
Immediately after the incident, Chapman began apologizing, telling his fans that he was wrong and ashamed and would do whatever it took to repair the damage he’d done.
“I am deeply disappointed in myself for speaking out of anger to my son and using such a hateful term in a private phone conversation,” he said. “I was disappointed in his choice of a friend, not due to her race, but her character. However, I should have never used that term.”
No word yet on when Dog will be back on schedule, but filming has reportedly begun and A&E officials have confirmed that the show will be returning. Stay tuned to Reality TV Magazine for scheduling information as it comes available.
