“America’s Most Wanted” picked up by Lifetime
John Walsh’s pioneering series “America’s Most Wanted” has been picked up by Lifetime for its 25th season after being cancelled this spring by Fox.
“America’s Most Wanted” has played a major role in the capture of more than 1,100 fugitives in the United States and 30 countries, including 17 on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List, as well as in the rescue of 61 children and missing persons, since the show began in 1988, according to a news release.
Host and executive producer Walsh will be presented with the Governors Award, “which salutes an individual, company or organization that has made a substantial impact and demonstrated the extraordinary use of television,” this month at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards.
Walsh became a crime-fighting activist and victims’ advocate after his 6-year-old son Adam was kidnapped and murdered in 1981.
“America’s Most Wanted” will return later this year.
