Shurtleff, who was in Los Angeles Thursday for a taping of the self-help expert's syndicated television program, said he welcomed a chance to appear on the follow-up to Tuesday's "Brainwashed Brides" show.
That show featured Fawn Broadbent and Fawn Holm, teenage girls who fled their polygamous home on the Utah/Arizona border last year but have since had second thoughts about leaving their family and faith behind.
"I'm very excited to explain what we're doing," the attorney general said. His administration has focused on crimes related to the polygamous lifestyle, such as forced child marriages and tax and welfare fraud.
The hourlong show taped Thursday is scheduled to air on May 24.
In preparation, Shurtleff recently accompanied Jay McGraw, the son of host Phil McGraw, on a tour of Hildale, Utah, and Colorado City, Ariz., home to members of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
