CNBC Orders Three New Non-Scripted Series

'BYOB: Be Your Own Boss,' 'Staten Island Hustle' and 'Deadly Ruich' All to Debut in 2018

CNBC has greenlit three new series for 2018: “BYOB: Be Your Own Boss,” “Staten Island Hustle” and “Deadly Rich.” Debuting Tuesday, Feb. 27 at 10 p.m. ET, “BYOB: Be Your Own Boss” features reformed entrepreneur, self-made millionaire, and small-business expert, Dennis Mulgannon helping people escape the rat race and become their own boss in a week, by buying the existing small business of their dreams.

Opening this spring, “Staten Island Hustle” follows a group of animated, life-long friends and businessmen from Staten Island who’ve yet to come up with an idea or product too far-fetched for them to invest in. Without MBAs (or even college degrees) these men prove that grit, ingenuity, and street smarts may be the real key to success.

”Deadly Rich,” which premieres this summer and is from the producers of “American Greed,” takes viewers inside these cases, navigating every evil twist and salacious turn to reveal the secrets and lies of the moneyed class. In their minds they are killers too rich to jail. And for the victims, money does not protect them, it makes them a target.
