The ABC television reality show Shark Tank is back. The first episode of season two will air on Friday, March 25th on ABC.
Season Two of â€œShark Tankâ€ promises to make TV history with the Sharks offering over $10 million in investment deals to bankroll a creative array of innovative entrepreneurs. The Season Premiere, â€œEpisode 202,â€ airs FRIDAY, MARCH 25 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on ABC.
High tech billionaire entrepreneur Mark Cuban and successful comedian and self-made businessman Jeff Foxworthy jump into the Tank to appear separately in the showâ€™s eight episodes.
In the Season Premiere, the air in the Shark Tank gets emotionally charged between the Sharks and a daring entrepreneur when one of the Sharks is willing to part with $4 million dollars of his own money for a business â€” the largest sum in the showâ€™s history. When the Sharks all like the genius idea from a young woman who rents toys in the same way as DVDs, they fight each other for a piece of it. Also, an extreme sports enthusiast introduces a hip, new product that has the Sharks hopping; and a man shows how his â€œWake â€˜N Baconâ€ device provides an aromatic morning wake-up call. In addition, thereâ€™s an update on last seasonâ€™s Granola Gourmet owner, Jeff Cohen, whom Kevin Oâ€™Leary called â€œradioactive.â€
Last season the Sharks, using their expertise and contacts, along with their own money, made investment commitments totaling an incredible $5 million, and viewers will have the opportunity to see how those investments turned out in follow-up stories this season.
The Shark investors who will appear throughout the second season are: Mark Cuban, Jeff Foxworthy, real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran, infomercial industry pioneer Kevin Harrington, technology innovator Robert Herjavec, fashion icon Daymond John and financial expert Kevin Oâ€™Leary.
Mark Burnett, Clay Newbill and Phil Gurin are the executive producers of â€œShark Tank,â€ based on the Japanese â€œDragonsâ€™ Denâ€ format created by Nippon Television Network Corporation. The episode is directed by Ken Fuchs. The series is from Sony Pictures Television.
