Steve Harvey, the host of NBC’s “Little Big Shots,” and syndicated “Family Feud” and “The Steve Harvey Show,” and producer Mark Burnett (“Shark Tank,” “Survivor”) are collaborating to deliver a 13-episode seed-funding business series to ABC to air this year.
The logline: The show brings together sets of rival entrepreneurs who competitively pitch their ideas head to head in front of a live studio audience. The audience will then vote on which entrepreneur will receive funding for their idea. Steve Harvey will become the “funder of dreams,” as he brings his personal business experience and encouraging comedy as the host.
“My dream has been to work with Steve, and this is the perfect project for us to do together,” said executive producer Mark 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.”
Said Steve Harvey: “I’m thrilled to have another passion project on the ABC schedule. This is just the type of show that gives folks a vehicle to breathe life into their dreams.”
The still untitled series will be produced by MGM Television and internationally distributed by MGM.
