Steve Harvey & Mark Burnett Team On Business Reality Series For ABC

Steve Harvey Mark Burnett

Steve Harvey and Mark Burnett are partnering on a seed-funding business reality series to air this year on ABC.

The show, with Harvey as host, features sets of rival entrepreneurs who competitively pitch their ideas head to head in front of a live studio audience, according to the network. The audience will then vote on which entrepreneur will receive funding for their idea. ABC already has a reality series about entrepreneurs, hit Shark Tank, which Burnett executive produces.

“My dream has been to work with Steve, and this is the perfect project for us to do together,” said 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.”

Harvey has become the busiest host working in TV — he has his daily syndicated talk show and Family Feud as well as 3 primetime series, Celebrity Family Feud, the new ABC show, and breakout NBC series Little Big Shots.

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

The 13-episode series will be produced by MGM Television and internationally distributed by MGM.

This is the fourth collaboration between Burnett and ABC, who have previously teamed on Shark Tank, Beyond the Tank and 500 Questions.

Harvey is repped by WME.
