After the success of its TV-movie The Huntress, the USA Network developed it into a regular series. Reprising her role from the original is the great actress Annette O'Toole as Dottie Thorson, wife of murdered bounty-hunting legend Ralph "Papa" Thorson, who carries on the family business out of financial necessity. Jordana Spiro ably took over the role of her feisty, cynical daughter Brandi, much more born to the business than her domesticated mother. James Remar also returned as Tiny Bellows, providing a love interest for Dottie. Luis Antonio Ramos rounds out the cast of regulars as bail bondsman Ricky Guzman.
