THE OFFICIAL "SHARK TANK" COMPANION SERIES, "BEYOND THE TANK," RETURNS BEGINNING TUESDAY, JANUARY 5 (10:00-11:00 P.M. EST) ON ABC

Learn More About the Entrepreneurs' Personal Journeys as Well as Their Passion, Drive and Hard Work, as They Persevere to Pursue the American Dream

"Episode 201" - Watch as the sharks roll up their sleeves to help their entrepreneurs make the tough decisions that hopefully lead to success, growth and profits in "Beyond the Tank," the companion series from the producers of the Emmy-award-winning reality series "Shark Tank." The one-hour episodes of "Beyond the Tank" will feature the captivating and surprising outcomes after the sharks strike a deal with the entrepreneurs on "Shark Tank." "Beyond the Tank" returns TUESDAY, JANUARY 5 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EST) on the ABC Television Network.

When Barbara Corcoran made a deal in Season Five with Rick and Melissa Hinnant from Austin, TX, little did she know the women's clothing company Grace and Lace would become one of her most successful companies. Barbara visits the entrepreneurs to offer Melissa advice and needed emotional support to move the business forward, as well as how best to address the company's overcrowding and staffing issues.

Portland, OR resident Matt Reed didn't get a deal in the Shark Tank when he pitched his smartly designed urban beehives during Season Six, but his mission to help the plight of the bee persuaded Daymond John to become a customer. Matt gets an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity when Daymond invites him to visit his upstate New York property to check on his hives and hopefully get some insightful business advice.

Lori Greiner truly found a "hero" when she invested during Season Four in Aaron Krause's scratch-free sponge, Scrub Daddy, the most successful product in "Shark Tank" history, with sales approaching $75 million. But just as Lori and Folcroft, PA resident Aaron are on the verge of announcing several new product lines, a catastrophic issue rears its head, which could mean the end of the company.

"Beyond the Tank" is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HDTV format with stereo sound. This program carries a TV-PG parental guideline.

SEASON PREMIERE

THE OFFICIAL "SHARK TANK" COMPANION SERIES, "BEYOND THE TANK," RETURNS BEGINNING THURSDAY, JANUARY 7 (8:00-9:00 P.M. EST) ON ABC

Learn More About the Entrepreneurs' Personal Journeys as Well as Their Passion, Drive and Hard Work as They Persevere to Pursue the American Dream

Watch as the Sharks roll up their sleeves to help their entrepreneurs make the tough decisions that hopefully lead to success, growth and profits in "Beyond the Tank," the companion series from the producers of the Emmy-award-winning reality series "Shark Tank." The one-hour episodes of "Beyond the Tank" will feature the captivating and surprising outcomes after the Sharks strike a deal with the Entrepreneurs on "Shark Tank." The season premiere, "Episode 202," airs THURSDAY, JANUARY 7 (8:00-9:00 p.m. EST) on the ABC Television Network.

In the premiere, "Episode 202," Mark Cuban checks in on the investment he made during season 4 with then 18-year-old Lani Lazzari's Simple Sugars natural-scrub product line. He believed he saw in her a "mini-me." Three years later, Mark might have to corral some of the ideas this now accomplished businesswoman from Pittsburgh has, which include her desire to grow Simple Sugars into a $30 million company.

After Daymond John made a deal with Solomon Fallas from New York, the Shark and the entrepreneur didn't always see eye-to-eye about how best to market Solomon's 180 Cup, a party cup with a built-in shot glass. Daymond wonders if they will continue as business partners and a tense meeting provides the answer.

In Season Six, Abe Geary from Camarillo, CA immediately regretted not taking a Shark's offer for 60 percent of his offbeat product, Pet Paint, a non-permanent colored hairspray for pets. But he did take their helpful advice to heart and went on to rack up $1 million in sales. As he focuses to get the product into a retail space without a Shark's guidance, he's discovering it's not as easy as he thought.

Before Stephen Hersh from New York went into the Tank during Season 6, he had almost bankrupted his luggage company, Biaggi, with excess inventory and high overhead. Lori Greiner's investment saved him, but she's shocked to learn he's invested half-a-million dollars in a product he knows doesn't meet her approval. Is he going to make the same mistake?

"Beyond the Tank" is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HDTV format with stereo sound. This program carries a TV-PG parental guideline.
