"America’s Most Wanted," which has helped capture more than 1,100 fugitives in the U.S. and 30 countries, has found a new television home after Fox’s decision in May to cancel the show as a weekly program, reports Deadline.com.
The new home is Lifetime. While the cable network is geared to female viewers and "America’s Most Wanted" is seen as a male-oriented show, some observers point out that the show is actually female-skewing because of its wish-fulfillment aspect of serving justice, the piece points out.
“ ‘America’s Most Wanted’ is a seminal program that provides a very valuable service to both viewers and law enforcement agencies,” said Lifetime’s president and general manager, Nancy Dubuc.
The show’s 25th season will debut on Lifetime later this year, the story adds.
