Mark Cuban joining 'Shark Tank'
Exclu: Entertainment entrepreneur Mark Cuban is joining ABC’s "Shark Tank" for the show’s second season.
The owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks and chairman of cable channel HDNet will be a guest venture capitalist for three episodes.
The pitch-perfect casting has the always-opinionated Cuban joining the regular panel of self-made multimillionaires judging business ventures pitched by enterprising small-business owners.
He joins the more unusual and previously announced casting of comedian Jeff Foxworthy, who also will appear in three episodes. Even before the second season was announced, producers received more than 20,000 inquires from entrepreneurs who wanted to pitch their ideas.
"Shark" is produced by Mark Burnett Prods. and Sony Pictures TV and will return next season.
