While we naturally wish for the continued physical safety of Cary businessman Kevin Flannery, we were a little disappointed when we learned that ABC's new show "Shark Tank" has nothing to do with actual sharks in tanks. Discovery Channel's Shark Week must be getting to us.
"Shark Tank," from the producer of "Survivor" and "The Apprentice," features inventors and entrepreneurs pitching business ideas in hopes of winning financial backing from a panel of millionaires. The aspiring moguls must sometimes give up a substantial chunk of their business in exchange for the money.
Flannery (right), owner of the company WiSpots, filmed the show in California earlier this year. Did Flannery get an offer? We'll have to wait and see.
In the meantime, reviews are in and it sounds like the contestants are likeable and that the show is going to be pretty interesting. So there are even more reasons to tune in!
And check back here on Monday, because we'll be rehashing the events, and hopefully have some insight from the WiSpot CEO himself.
"Shark Tank" airs Sunday night at 9pm.
