Fox is developing a scripted police drama called "Atlanta's Most Wanted". Ugh, what a slap in the face to us AMW fans that they cancel a show that did so much good and bring anything called Most Wanted back that's not the show, I don't care how good or bad it is. (Even worse, the acronym for Atlanta's Most Wanted is AMW).
With all the renewed interest in true crime, I really don't get why at least a new weekly AMW-type show hosted by Elizabeth Smart or another victim's advocate has not happened yet.
I saw multiple reports for "Atlanta's Most Wanted" as well. I agree it's a slap in the face, especially as was shown by both Lifetime and CNN, FOX could have made a lot of revenue off an AMW-like true crime show if they had simply revamped the format and not screwed it up as we saw with the 2010-2011 season.

What's also really embarrassing for FOX is that while they gave up on AMW in 2011/2012, some of their local news stations are still doing local most wanted feature stories. Example being "Oklahoma's Most Dangerous" I just learned about.

I'm watching a re-run of A&E's Live PD television series. For the first time I saw a profile of a wanted fugitive and realized they do brief profiles of a fugitive each episode. The fugitive I saw was Fitzgerald McNeil, wanted out of Columbia, South Carolina for attempted murder and according to the show, sexual conduct as well. I'm going to go a thread on him right now and keep an eye out for future shows of the series.
Was thinking it would be hilarious if during one of the airings of the new season of The Hunt on HLN there's sudden breaking news that Trump announces he's resigning the next day (or to placate other potential readers even though this is off-topic insert a political scandal on the other side) and The Hunt is still going on without interruption since it's not on a news channel anymore while CNN MSNBC and Fox News are going crazy and we're like "thank goodness John Walsh is on a variety/crime channel now!" LOL!

Was browsing web.archive.org on the off chance they had any additional self-uploaded AMW content, and came across this book from 1990. It apparently has profiles of more than 35 fugitives wanted for murder during that time and the cover shows photos of longtime AMW fugitives Alvaro Alvarado and Teddy Ellis. It's called Wanted For Murder by Stephen Michaud and I'm trying to see if it can be downloaded as an ebook or something like that.
Here's the cover just to show what I'm talking about.

Now somewhat along the lines of my last post, I learned that in 1989 there was book by Richard Dominick called "FBI's 25 Most Wanted". On the cover as you'll be able to see below are fugitives including Donald Eugene Webb (whose remains were recently located), Victor Gerena, Pedro Estrada and Joe Sinnott Edwards. I'll try to see if there's some type of online record (did manage to access the web.archive.org posting of the 1990 book mentioned in the post above), to learn about any other fugitives featured.
