SHARK TANK TO RETURN IN 2011 WITH JEFF FOXWORTHY
Released by Miss TV Girl
Reality series "Shark Tank" has been renewed for eight episodes. The reality series gives entrepreneurs the chance to pitch their ideas to a panel of major tycoons, or "sharks."
The original five sharks -- venture capitalist Kevin O'Leary, real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran, infomercial vet Kevin Harrington, tech millionaire Robert Herjavec, and FUBU owner Daymond John --- have all signed on to return.
There will be one new addition to the show when it returns in the fall , comedian Jeff Foxworthy. A self-made successful businessman in his own right, Foxworthy expanded his popular work in stand-up comedy into an empire of albums, books, hit comedy tours, and forays into television and radio. As an entrepreneur, he has a line of greeting cards and specialty products through American Greetings, a line of You Might Be A Redneck If....calendars, and a line of beef jerky and of barbeque sauces.
Foxworthy will join the series for three of the eight hour-long episodes as judge.
