TNT Greenlights Makeover Series "Save Our Business" (working title), Featuring Entrepreneurial Titan Peter Jones
TNT has greenlit Save Our Business (working title), a transformational business-makeover series headlined by British entrepreneur and millionaire Peter Jones. TNT ordered six episodes of the series, which is set to launch in late 2013.
Peter Jones is a titan of entrepreneurship who has created a worldwide empire with more than a hundred businesses, both large and small. In TNT's Save Our Business, Jones travels across America on a mission - investing his time and expertise and putting his reputation and even his own money on the line to save small businesses in trouble. Each week, Jones will assess the major problems facing a struggling company and design a plan to help save it from collapsing.
Save Our Business comes to TNT from A. Smith & Company, with Arthur Smith (Hell's Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares, American Ninja Warrior), Kent Weed (Hell's Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares, American Ninja Warrior) and Frank Sinton (Full Throttle Saloon, Unsung, American Gangster) serving as executive producers.
In addition to Save Our Business, TNT recently greenlit Cold Justice (working title), which follows two top-notch female investigators as they dig into murder cases that have gone unsolved for years. Cold Justice is slated to premiere in summer 2013. In February, TNT will launch Boston's Finest, an unscripted look at Boston law-enforcement officers from executive producer Donnie Wahlberg. And this summer, TNT will debut The Hero, a competition series headlined by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and 72 Hours, a race-against-the-clock competition show set in the wild.
