American broadcaster ABC has ordered eight more episodes of Shark Tank, produced by Mark Burnett, Clay Newbill and Phil Gurin. The American version of the Japanese Dragon’s Den format, created by Nippon Television Network Corporation, gives aspiring entrepreneurs the opportunity to pitch their ideas in front of five multi-millionaire tycoons. The five ‘Sharks’ are real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran, infomercial pioneer Kevin Harrington, technology innovator Robert Herjavec, fashion icon Daymond John, financial expert Kevin O’Leary. New for this season, comedian Jeff Foxworthy will join the panel for three episodes. Shark Tank returns to production this fall and will air in 2011.
