U.S. cable network Up TV has ordered the series Last Hope with Troy Dunn (working title, pictured) from DunnDeal Studios.

The 10 x 30-minute series, which will premiere in the fall, follows “professional people finder” Troy Dunn as he facilitates reunions between families and their lost loved ones. Dunn will search for the absent family member using social media, technology and detective work.

“In all of my years of sharing real-life reunions on television, I have maintained very specific boundaries for the cameras capturing these powerful, vulnerable events,” he said in a statement. “Because of my faith in UP and our shared vision, I have decided to blow up those former boundaries and allow viewers deeper inside the experience than I ever imagined I would.”

Dunn has also appeared in reality TV shows The Locator (pictured) and APB with Troy Dunn, and is a regular guest on daytime talk show Dr. Phil.

Up TV has acquired all 44 episodes of The Locator from Off the Fence and will begin airing it on June 1. The series was originally produced by Asylum Entertainment for WE tv.
