Dog the Bounty Hunter and Leland are able to attend the “Southern-Fried Comic Con” Bubba Fest, this weekend.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — America’s favorite bounty hunters Duane “Dog” Chapman and Leland Chapman are returning to East Tennessee. The two met with fans at the inaugural Bubba Fest in Pigeon Forge last year, along the late Beth Chapman. As is often the case with visitors to the Great Smoky Mountains, they couldn’t wait to get back.
In a development sure to please fans from all over the country, Dog the Bounty Hunter and Leland are able to attend the “Southern-Fried Comic Con” Bubba Fest, this weekend.
“We had such a great time with the Chapmans last year,” said Bubba Fest Promoter Chris Lewis, “when they asked to come back, we were, of course, excited to have them.”
Lewis added that, “After the passing of Beth this summer, we know that many fans will want to reach out and pay their respects.” Dog and Leland will be signing autographs and taking photographs Saturday and Sunday at the event.
Dog and the Chapman family rose to fame during their A&E Network series “Dog The Bounty Hunter,” which ran for eight seasons and featured nearly the entire family at some point.
The new series “Dog’s Most Wanted” will premiere on WGN America this Sept. 4, and will see Dog, Beth, and a team of bounty hunters travel the country to hunt down their own “Most Wanted” list.
