The move by Dorsey Pictures brings 100 jobs to Castle Rock, and they're hiring!
The company producing the new show Dog's Most Wanted, which features Duane "Dog" Chapman and his late wife Beth Chapman, has moved its headquarters to Castle Rock, Colorado. Dorsey Pictures (A Red Arrow Studios Company) is a television and digital production and marketing firm co-founded by Chris and Amy Dorsey that was previously based out of Denver.
The move brings 100 jobs to the city of Castle Rock, and there are openings for executive staff and production team positions. CEO Chris Dorsey credits the city of Castle Rock’s "easy access to Denver International Airport, high-speed communications systems, world-class amenities, and fantastic quality of life," as reasons behind the move in a press release about the relocation.
Dorsey Pictures has been around for about 18 years, changing its name from Orion Entertainment a few years ago as part of a merger with Red Arrow. They are credited with being one of the largest producers of outdoor adventure television programming, as well as true crime programs, and are behind shows like Building Alaska, Tiny House Big Living, Kodiak, and Accident, Suicide or Murder, and have a long history working with HGTV, Discovery, Travel Channel, Oxygen, and many more. There are currently over 20 series in production with Dorsey Pictures.
The most recent series with the Chapmans is set to premiere on WGN America on September 4. This series is the final reality series with Beth Chapman, as the show was filmed during her cancer treatments and documents her journey, as well as the family business of tracking down fugitives.
Beth Chapman passed away at the age of 51 on June 26, after fighting throat cancer since 2017. Her husband credits her with being the force behind the new show and describes her as the heart and soul. The two starred in several reality television shows as they hunted down wanted felons and raised a blended family of 12 children in their time together.
In a press release, the company describes the new show:
"Together they will go on a cross-country manhunt to track down a carefully curated list of Dog's Most Wanted fugitives. In their personal lives, the series tackles the family's most difficult fight as their beloved matriarch Beth Chapman bravely fights -- and tragically loses -- her battle with cancer."
