Harvey, Burnett Behind ABC Reality Series

The new show brings together sets of rival entrepreneurs who competitively pitch their ideas head to head in front of a studio audience. The audience will then vote on which entrepreneur will receive funding for their idea.

Mark Burnett, Emmy-winning executive producer of the ABC hit series Shark Tank, and Steve Harvey, executive producer and star of primetime hits Celebrity Family Feud and Little Big Shots, collaborate to deliver a 13-episode seed-funding business series to ABC to air in 2016.

The show brings together sets of rival entrepreneurs who competitively pitch their ideas head to head in front of a live studio audience. The audience will then vote on which entrepreneur will receive funding for their idea. Steve Harvey will become the “funder of dreams,” as he brings his personal business experience and encouraging comedy as the host. 

This marks the fourth collaboration between Burnett and ABC, following Shark Tank, Beyond the Tank and 500 Questions.

“My dream has been to work with Steve, and this is the perfect project for us to do together,” said executive producer Mark Burnett. “He is an amazing talent and has an enormous heart for entrepreneurs, some of whom will get their business jump-started because of him.” 

Steve Harvey said: “I’m thrilled to have another passion project on the ABC schedule. This is just the type of show that gives folks a vehicle to breathe life into their dreams.” 

The series will be produced by MGM Television and internationally distributed by MGM.
