The last original episode of the best reality show of all-time was filmed in December of 2008 and since then I have waited with bated breath for news of its resurrection.
A Kickstarter emerged for the new show (entitled Hansen vs. Predator), and the team ultimately raised $89,068, which was well above their initial goal. Hansen has stated that the new show will be similar to To Catch A Predator.
"We'll be having decoys come into different areas where predators may exist to conduct our investigations," he said. "That will be similar. We'll set up a house or a public place."
The biggest difference is their partnership with LexisNexis — the company that specializes in legal and business research will allow them to "find out more about a person before they actually show up at the location to be interviewed." He adds, "So, I can envision a scenario where we could show somebody's life—they're a teacher or a doctor—so you have a fuller picture and a better investigation."
I've read that Hansen vs. Predator will be underway before the end of the year and that the team is already meeting with distributors and law enforcement agencies across the country. Hansen also said that while the show will continue to focus on adult predators going after children, they may expand into other types of predators, including financial scammers and other online bad guys.
