ABC is creating a new series that will be a companion piece to one of the more popular shows on the network. Writing in The New York Times, Bill Carter reports that the network is developing “Beyond the Tank,” a companion to “Shark Tank.”
The new show will be produced by Sony Pictures Television, as is “Shark Tank.” The new program will follow start-ups as they seek to introduce their products into the market.
Mark Burnett will executive produce “Beyond the Tank,” which doesn’t have a debut date but will likely appear on ABC in the 2014-15 season.
“This show is exactly what ‘Shark Tank’ fans have been asking: Tell me what happens when they walk out of the tank,” Burnett wrote in an email to the publication.
