This week Fox effectively canceled the long-running crime series “America’s Most Wanted,” relegating it to a handful of specials.

Today the New York TimesBrian Stelter profiles the show, and speaks to its host and executive producer, John Walsh, about its future:

Mr. Walsh is considering taking the show into syndication, where episodes could be sold to local stations individually or in groups. He said he had heard from “a lot of different entities” already but did not name them. He said he also had a number of proposals for international variations of the show, but added, “Of course, you need to have ‘America’s Most Wanted’ to do the ‘World’s Most Wanted.’ ”
