"Beyond the Tank" is a reality series on ABC that serves as a companion to "Shark Tank" that explores the opportunities and challenges that come after striking a deal in the tank.

Watch as the Sharks roll up their sleeves to help their entrepreneurs make the tough decisions that hopefully lead to success, growth and profits in this companion series.

Audiences familiar with the compelling ups and downs of the "Shark Tank" negotiations will be further engaged in the drama that takes place after the entrepreneurs' appearance on the show. What lies in the aftermath of their investment? Did a promising deal turn sour, or did it lead to millions of dollars in sales?

"Beyond the Tank" will feature The Sharks: billionaire Mark Cuban, owner and chairman of AXS TV and outspoken owner of the 2011 NBA championship Dallas Mavericks; real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran; "Queen of QVC" Lori Greiner; technology innovator Robert Herjavec; fashion and branding expert Daymond John; and venture capitalist Kevin O'Leary.

As the Sharks travel across America to mentor the entrepreneurs, assess the businesses and provide their industry expertise â€" to make a profit â€" audiences will realize the challenges and spirited negotiations are never over. The series will take a look back at past "Shark Tank" pitches and deals to examine the highs and lows that can come from an appearance in the tank.

Entrepreneurs will be revisited, whose businesses were groundbreaking in terms of their technology, business model or branding and have taken their business to new heights with the help of the Sharks. This series will delve into how those entrepreneurs and their Shark investors gambled on their businesses and then lost. The series will also examine businesses that multiple Sharks fought hard against each other to secure. We will learn more about the entrepreneurs' personal journeys as well as their struggles and triumphs as they persevere to pursue the American dream.

"Beyond the Tank" is produced by United Artists Media Group in association with Sony Pictures Television. Mark Burnett, Clay Newbill and Leslie Garvin and Phil Gurin are the executive producers.
