U.S. cable network CNBC has added Money Talks to its unscripted line-up and renewed The Car Chasers (pictured).

CNBC has tapped All3Media America, in association with Turn Left Productions and Lost Tribe Productions, to produce a docusoap called Money Talks. 

The one-hour pilot will air on September 10 at 10 p.m. EST/PST, and will look at the world of sports betting via Steve Stevens, who runs VIP Sports in Las Vegas. In addition to Stevens, the show will follow agents and clients who deal with six-figure bets.

In addition, CNBC has renewed The Car Chasers for a second season. Produced by ITV Studios America in association with Leepson Bounds Entertainment and Lost Tribe Productions, it premieres on October 29 at 10 p.m. EST/PST.

Car Chasers will return with 16 x half-hour episodes looking at beautiful cars and their transformations, with the team from Flat 12 in Lubbock, Texas.

The Car Chasers developed a loyal fan base and we’re excited to build off that momentum and grow the show,” said Jim Ackerman, CNBC’s senior VP of primetime alternative programming. “Money Talks takes us deep inside the world of sports betting in Las Vegas. It’s a world that hasn’t been explored in primetime and we’re confident that our viewers will be fascinated by this intimate look at high stakes gambling.”
