Akil the Fugitive Hunter - Netflix
A&E's new original docuseries Akil the Fugitive Hunter combines live-action and animation to chronicle the journey of modern-day superhero Akil Muhammad as he tracks and captures some of the most elusive criminals in Los Angeles in order to keep his community safe. Narrated by actor and activist Wood Harris ("The Wire"), the series features original animation from influential animator Carl Jones ("Black Dynamite," "The Boondocks") and original music from multiplatinum singer and producer Ty Dolla \$ign, who also serves as executive music producer for the series. Growing up in South Central Los Angeles, Akil saw thugs and gangsters committing crimes with impunity. On the verge of entering into the criminal world himself, he chose to take a different path after losing his best friend to gang violence and vowed to do everything in his power to rid his neighborhood of those doing harm. Today, Akil has become one of the most successful bounty hunters in California, yet he remains true to his original mission: fighting to keep his community safe from gangsters, murderers, rapists and those who seek to hurt innocent people.
Exploring a new case each week, the series uses Carl Jones' animation to detail the origin story of each criminal and fuses it with live-action footage of Akil's mission to apprehend the felons and take them off the streets. Actor and activist Wood Harris serves as narrator and provides an inside look into his friend Akil's world. South Central native Ty Dolla \$ign serves as executive music producer and co-wrote the series' original theme song "Redemption Song" with Jared Gutstadt.
