Dog The Bounty Hunter gets 2nd chance: A&E

Bounty hunter Duane (Dog) Chapman will be returning to his reality television series, three months after a racial slur caused cable channel A&E to suspend it.
A&E revealed late Tuesday that production on Dog The Bounty Hunter will start up again but a broadcast date has not been set.
Duane (Dog) Chapman, seen here in Honolulu, Hawaii last year, had his reality TV series pulled because of a phone conversation in which he used a racial slur against his son's girlfriend.

"Over the last few months, Duane (Dog) Chapman has taken and continues to take the appropriate steps in reaching out to several African-American organizations in an effort to make amends for his private comments to his son which were released publicly," said a statement from the network.
"Since the premise of Dog The Bounty Hunter is about second chances — we have decided to give him one."
The show was taken off air last November after a private phone call between Chapman and his son Tucker was released in which the bounty hunter used the N-word to describe Tucker's girlfriend.
Chapman apologized several times publicly and to the African-American community, promising to make amends.
It was also discovered later that Tucker had sold a tape of the conversation to The National Enquirer.
The 55-year-old Chapman, based in Honolulu, Hawaii, is an ex-con himself.
He rose to fame in 2003 after capturing Max Factor heir and serial rapist Andrew Luster in Mexico, leading to his TV series.
The show follows Chapman, his wife Beth and their little posse of bounty hunters as they track down bail jumpers.
The show is seen in more than 10 countries.
