As tight and tough as they come, the Evangelistas are just like any other hard-working American family, with one major difference — they are bail bondsmen and bounty hunters. Family Bonds, the new 10-part real-life series debuting exclusively on HBO reveals the day-to-day dramas of this outrageous family, on the job and off, as they confront the unpredictable dangers of bounty hunting and the challenges of modern family life with resourcefulness, warmth and humor.

As the head of this clan, how does Tom Evangelista feel about depending on his family in such a dangerous business? “I hate ‘em most of the time, but I love ‘em all,” he says. “Why wouldn’t I want to work with them too? Who else can you really trust except your family?”
