Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban made a big splash with his appearances last season on an ABC show, and now the outspoken billionaire is in position to make even more waves on “Shark Tank,” reports EW.com’s Inside TV blog.
Cuban, who recently presided over his basketball team’s first NBA championship, will effectively be a regular on the business-oriented reality show during its third season, according to the story.
Cuban made three appearances on the show last season — appearances in which the story says Cuban stole the show. For season three, he has been signed by the network and executive producer Mark Burnett to take on a higher profile, appearing in 10 of the show’s 13 episodes.
The show is expected to return midseason to ABC’s Friday night lineup.
