HLN to Premiere Season Four of CNN Original Series “The Hunt with John Walsh,” Beginning Sunday, July 30
Double Season of 16 New Episodes Will Air Exclusively on HLN Sundays at 8pm ET/PT
Season four of the acclaimed CNN Original Series The Hunt with John Walsh, which tells stories of ongoing criminal investigations of fugitives, will air exclusively on HLN with a double season of 16 episodes beginning Sunday, July 30 at 8 pm ET/PT. The series’ third season was simulcast on CNN and HLN in 2016.
Hosted by Walsh, a passionate victim’s rights activist, television personality and founder of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, The Hunt is produced by the Peabody and Emmy award winning Zero Point Zero Production.
Through interviews with victims, loved ones and law enforcement, coupled with new leads, The Hunt provides the public with salient information to facilitate the capture of fugitives profiled in the series. To date, eight cases have been resolved following the airing of those stories on The Hunt.
“When we launched The Hunt three years ago on CNN, our goal was to bring fugitives – many accused of truly heinous crimes – to justice. We’ve had a great deal of success with the show and I’m glad to continue the mission now on HLN with 16 weekly episodes,” said Walsh.
“We are honored to be working with John Walsh and ZPZ to present this important program that continues to serve the public by spotlighting potentially dangerous fugitives and helping to facilitate their capture. The Hunt also complements the network’s primetime lineup of mystery and investigation programming not only engages the viewer but can actually save lives. It’s also a perfect fit for HLN with our emphasis on mysteries and investigations in primetime,” said Ken Jautz, executive vice president, CNN.
On Sunday, July 23, at 8pm HLN will air The Hunt with John Walsh: Still Running, a compilation of open cases from prior seasons. (CNN)
