Akil The Fugitive Hunter is a reality TV show currently airing in the United states. Appearing on A&E, the series is narrated by Wood Harris and features the use of both live action and animation to showcase the activities undertaken by Akil Muhammad. Throughout the already released episode, the series’ showman Akil uses his skills to track down dangerous criminals with the sole aim of enhancing safety. This crime TV show has gained instant love from the public.
Here are some facts of the show that you probably did not know about.
Akil Muhammad nearly became a criminal himself
Even though Akil has devoted his life into hunting down criminals, the real life super hero nearly crossed the line too. He grew up in the southern parts of the United States where drug trafficking and crime was the order of the day. When growing up, he thought this was the way of life and even tried to walk down that path. However, the death of his best friend in gang violence made him change his mind. The choice that led to him being what he is today.
The use of animation is to portray Akil’s back-stories
As you may be familiar already, the film uses both real time action and animation. According to its director, the use of animation is mainly to portray Akil’s back-stories. When people live in an environment where there is a lot of crime and drug activities, they become numb to it and that is true for Akil. The use of animation therefore portrays the actions in another dimension.
Carl Jones is behind the animation
Do you remember Carl Jones? From the Boondocks and Dynamite? Of course you do. If you loved his various works, he is the one behind the animation in the series “Akil The Fugitive Hunter”. According to the film’s director, Carl Jones reinforced the belief that the film would do well and fit the story naturally well. As the show continues to air, the more success the animations get. They have been tried before anyway so no reason for panicking.
Akil Muhammad is one of the most successful bounty hunters
In the state of California, AKil is no stranger due to his abilities to track down and apprehend criminals. The series Akil The Fugitive Hunter is more of a real life story than fiction. During his lifetime, he has kept the community safe from criminals such as murderers and drug dealers. This makes the series worth watching as it continues to air. On the other hand, Akil has never been in trouble with the law. Despite the fact that he nearly chose the criminal path once, he has a clean record and that explains why his show is a success.
It is hard to obtain information about who Akil really is
With his success, you would expect to find several pages on the internet trying to describe who he is. However, apart from the film that he currently stars in, he remains a mystery. What else would you expect from a fugitive hunter anyway? He keeps a silent lifestyle that criminals can trace or get away from him easily.
