A&E’s planned Saints and Sinners, an upcoming reality show about the Set Free Soldiers, a Christian bike gang that runs a halfway house for reformed alcoholics, might be on the chopping block. A bar brawl in Newport Beach, California this week resulted in the crew’s leader and several of its members being arrested on suspicion of murder. This is very reminiscent of the troubles that A&E has had with Dog The Bounty Hunter, after the hunter was arrested by the Mexican government during one of his pursuits.
However, A&E ended up giving Dog another chance and green-lit the show for a new season, which might mean there’s hope yet for the new biker show. A&E sure does love their controversial shows.
