CNBC Nabs Off-Network Rights to ABC’s ‘Shark Tank’

Episodes to begin airing on CNBC in 2014

Fans of ABC’s “Shark Tank” will have a new network they can tune into come January.

CNBC has licensed the off-network rights to the biz competition program, and will roll out segs on the cabler beginning early next year. Acquisition follows CNBC attaining the off-net rights to NBC’s “The Apprentice” and bowing the episodes in March.

Shark Tank’s motivational stories are wrapped in the fundamentals of business and entrepreneurship,” said Mark Hoffman, prez and CEO of the cabler.  “The ‘Sharks’ are self-made mega successes and the contestants seek their money and counsel as they plot their own paths to the American dream.  That practical knowledge and aspirational theme is pitch perfect for CNBC at night.”

“Shark Tank” debuted on ABC in 2009 and is produced by Sony Pictures TV. Mark Burnett, Clay Newbill and Phil Gurin exec produce the show.
