Co-executive producer, creator sues A&E over Dog the Bounty Hunter money

A co-executive producer on A&E’s Dog the Bounty Hunter is suing the network for $5 milllion+, saying he hasn’t been paid for the fourth season of the show.

“Boris Krutonog of Los Angeles says the A&E Television Networks and others failed to pay him for the fourth season of the show as its creator and co-executive producer” and “also have failed to give Krutonog accountings of money earned from home video, TV syndication and other sources, according to his papers filed this week in Manhattan’s state Supreme Court,” the AP reports.

According to his lawsuit, “Krutonog developed what became Dog the Bounty Hunter,” the AP says, and “to get his consent to produce and air the show, A&E agreed to pay him as co-executive producer ‘for the life of the program.’”

The show is currently filming its fifth season, which was ordered once A&E decided to give Dog a second chance following his use of racial slurs on a telephone call.
