CNBC PREMIERES ORIGINAL DOCU-SERIES "MONEY TALKS" WEDNESDAY, MARCH 19 AT 10PM ET/PT

Pasadena, CA - January 18, 2014 - During a presentation today for television critics, CNBC announced their latest series, "Money Talks," a docu-series that offers a revealing look inside the high stakes world of sports betting. "Money Talks" will premiere Wednesday, March 19 at 10pm ET/PT. The announcement was made today by Jim Ackerman, SVP, Primetime Alternative Programming, CNBC.

The eight one-hour episodes follows Steve Stevens, a sports handicapper who runs VIP Sports out of Las Vegas. The self-proclaimed 'Michael Jordan' of sports handicapping, Stevens claims his picks are right over 60% of the time. Each one-hour episode follows Stevens and his agents who sell their picks to gamblers looking for any kind of edge. From small-time bettors to big-time whales who can wager as much as six figures on a single game. This is a world built on high risk, high emotions and high rewards. But in a city like Vegas, with distractions and every imaginable vice, Stevens needs to keep his agents focused on building new business while he entertains big time bettors who come with big bankrolls and even bigger expectations.

"Our goal at CNBC is to bring viewers intimate looks at all sorts of businesses. And the world of gambling, for the most part, has not been seen on reality television," said Ackerman. "It's an exciting world with colorful characters and major stakes. And even in a city like Vegas, Steve Stevens stands out as one of the biggest and most dynamic characters you will meet."

The show also follows Stevens in his personal life. And when he isn't closing deals or entertaining his clients, he is known by his given name, Darin Notaro. He grew up in Vegas and after years of overindulging in the fast-paced Vegas lifestyle ... and a couple of short stints in prison ... Notaro is trying to build a more traditional life with his girlfriend Kelly, her two kids and a brand new baby boy.

"Money Talks" is produced by All3Media America in association with Turn Left Productions and Lost Tribe Productions. Stephen Lambert, Eli Holzman, Aaron Saidman, Todd Crites, Jackson Nguyen and Myles Reiff serve as Executive Producers. Jim Ackerman is Executive Producer for CNBC.
