The reality series Blue Collar Millionaires and The West Texas Investors Club are among a raft of greenlit shows and projects in development by U.S. cable net CNBC.

Set to debut later this year, the two greenlit series are the 495 Productions-made docuseries Blue Collar Millionaires, which profiles tycoons who have made their millions through manual labor, as well as the All3Media America-produced Restaurant Confidential: New York (working title), which goes behind-the-scenes at three different New York restaurants.

Elsewhere, the net has an additional three unscripted projects in development.

All3Media and Objective Productions’ Make Me a Millionaire Inventor follows a team of top mechanical engineers who track down interesting patents and work together with their inventors to make the projects a reality.

Also in development is The Ebersol Lanigan Company-produced The West Texas Investors Club (w/t), which centers on a group of Texas entrepreneurs who are part of the titular funding entity.

Finally, Back in the Game (w/t) – from SMAC Entertainment and Machete Productions - pairs struggling ex-athletes with financial mentors who attempt to get them back on their feet, whether it means launching a new career or emerging from debt.
