Life Inspired is presenting Shark Tank as part of the channel’s programming this September. The critically-acclaimed business themed reality show that has taken the U.S. by storm offers viewers a glimpse into the competitive, exciting world of business and entrepreneurship.
Shark Tank won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Structured Reality Program in 2014. The show sees the Sharks, who include tough, self-made, multi-millionaire and billionaire tycoons, in search of the next big business idea and product investments.
The Sharks include Mark Cuban, owner of the 2011 NBA Champion Dallas Mavericks; real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran; retail investor and well-known QVC personality Lori Greiner; technology innovator Robert Herjavec; fashion and branding expert Daymond John; and venture capitalist Kevin O’Leary.
Entrepreneurs from all walks of life, who dare to enter the tank, go through a gruelling, nerve-racking pitch processes to convince the Sharks to part with their own hard-earned cash and secure business deals that could make them millions. All of the good, bad, emotional and even absurd pitches help showcase the “I wish I had thought of that” business ideas and products.
The Sharks, on the other hand, are extremely goal-oriented. They want to get a return on their investment and own a piece of the next big business idea. When the Sharks hear an idea worth sinking their teeth into, they’re more than ready to declare war and fight each other for a piece of it.
In addition to its 2014 Emmy win and 2012 and 2013 nominations, Shark Tank has been honoured with two Critics Choice Television Awards, for Best Reality Series in 2015 and Best Reality Series Competition in 2014, as well as the Television Critics Association Award for Outstanding Achievement in Reality Programming in 2013.
Shark Tank S3, premieres 8th September 2015, Tuesdays, 8.30pm on Life Inspired (Astro Ch728)
