Roman Morales, a long-time government agent, joins a team of bounty hunters in rounding up people wanted by the law, in the new action series "Fugitivos de la Ley: Los Angeles" (Fugitives of the Law: Los Angeles), to be aired on the Mun2 cable broadcast network.

"It's a program about bounty hunters in English and Spanish, but I don't speak much Spanish - we're bounty hunters with different abilities that come to light during the show. When they work together you're going to see a lot of good action, good fun, but with a seriousness that makes it all very realistic," Morales told Efe.

"Fugitivos de la Ley: Los Angeles" in 24 episodes, of which six have already been shot in L.A. and the San Fernando Valley, will premiere on Jan. 13 and will air every Sunday at 8:00 p.m.

The program is a dramatization of real cases registered at bail bond companies that intercede on behalf of people arrested by the police.

"Bounty hunting goes into action when defendants skip bond, when they don't show up at court when they're supposed to, and we have to go find them and turn them in to the authorities," Morales said.

"We go out to arrest individuals who sometimes go quietly, but other times we come up against those who are really tough," he said.

"Fugitivos de la Ley: Los Angeles" is a series directed by Lou Pizarro, creator of the "Operation Repo" program about cars being repossessed because their owners fail to pay the automotive distributors what they owe them. EFE
