NEW ORLEANS - A bounty hunter who tracks New Orleans criminals will be the subject of a new reality TV show being launched next month by Spike TV.

"Big Easy Justice" will center on the gritty criminal underworld of New Orleans and a bounty hunter known as Tat-2, who hunts down some of the city's most elusive criminals.

Tat-2, whose real name is Gene Thacker, is a military veteran and former deputy with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office. According to a news release, Thacker's 12-year bounty hunting career has helped put away thousands of criminals charged with armed robbery, drug possession, domestic abuse and murder.

"Big Easy Justice" premieres April 10 at 9 p.m. CDT.
