ABC/Mark Burnett Productions is Looking for Inventors or Entrepreneurs

MONROEVILLE, Pa., June 9, 2009 — Are you an inventor with an awesome product or entrepreneur with a stellar business idea? If so, Mark Burnett Productions, creator of smash television hits, “Survivor” and “The Apprentice” would love to hear from you. The new show called “Shark Tank”, scheduled to air this fall on ABC, is a primetime opportunity for you to pitch your idea/product to a panel of five, tough judges and millions of television viewers. By the way, the show isn’t called “Shark Tank” because the producers weren’t able to come up with a better name. Applicants chosen as contestants must convince a panel of five savvy sharks to invest in their product/idea versus the others.
