"Bounty Hunters" Mobile App to Launch July 13

NEW YORK - June 12, 2013 - There's a new kind of criminal-catching bounty hunter coming to CMT with the network's first animated comedy series, BOUNTY HUNTERS, executive produced and voiced by Jeff Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy and Bill Engvall joined by series regular Lisa Lampanelli. The 13-episode series is set to premiere on Saturday, July 13 at 10:00 p.m., ET/PT.

America's favorite funny guys Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy and Engvall track down fugitives for their own two-bit bounty hunting business in each of the half-hour episodes. The team will do their best to chase down fugitives, while trying to please the tough-as-nails bondswoman who throws them cases, voiced by Lisa Lampanelli. The guys will have to deal with friends and family like Jeff's sassy ex-wife and her smarmy new husband, voiced by Samantha Bee and Jason Jones, and the local rednecks like Jesco (who just so happens to be Jeff's dad) voiced by Dave Thomas. Their bounties are always peculiar and are voiced by guest stars like Kellie Pickler. Blake Shelton, and Kix Brooks.

Muse Entertainment's digital team (Alfred Hedgehog, Gawayn) has also teamed up with Big Jump Interactive (Urban Jumper, Beats in Bites' Beat Box Mixer, Zeely's Adventure) to create a mobile (IOS & Android) game based on BOUNTY HUNTERS. Skeeter Creek Armchair Racer is an octane-fuelled racing app that fuses the plush comfort of your grandpa's lazy-boy with the rip roaring fun of lawn mower racing, all while attempting to apprehend a bunch of low-life-bail-jumpers, inspired from the series, who are using the race to escape! The game is set to launch on July 13th, so stay tuned to CMT.com and the CMT Facebook and Twitter pages for Skeeter Creek Armchair Racer release dates and updates.

BOUNTY HUNTERS is produced by Muse Entertainment in association with Parallel Entertainment, with animation services provided by Big Jump Productions. Directed by Cory Morrison, it is co-created by Glenn Clements, Ben Levin and Matt Burnett. Eric Horsted is the showrunner. Executive producers are Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy, Engvall, Eric Horsted, and Glenn Clements, as well as Joel S. Rice, Michael Prupas and Jesse Prupas for Muse Entertainment. JP Williams and Jennifer Novak executive produce for Parallel Entertainment; along with Jayson Dinsmore, Eliot Goldberg and Joe Livecchi for CMT.
