CNBC MEANS BUSINESS IN 2018

Expands Primetime Lineup with Three Greenlights, Three New Series and Seven New Projects in Development

CNBC in Primetime is the Fastest Growing Cable Entertainment Network Among Persons 25-54 Since Its Launch in 2013

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. & PASADENA, CA. - January 9, 2018 - CNBC continues to deliver a solid slate of original programming that speaks to the network's distinct brand filter. Since the launch of CNBC original unscripted programming, CNBC is the fastest-growing Cable Entertainment Network among Persons 25-54 in primetime with CNBC's audience moving younger and more affluent. CNBC had year-over-year viewership increases among all key demos and posted its best full-year C3 rating ever among Persons 18-34 in primetime. Coming off another solid year, CNBC today announced the network is growing its lineup in 2018 with a mix of new and returning series and seven development projects in the pipeline. New originals include "BYOB: Be Your Own Boss," "Staten Island Hustle" and "Deadly Rich." The network also announced the greenlight for a fourth season of "Jay Leno's Garage," currently airing original episodes on Thursdays at 10PM ET/PT, season twelve of "American Greed" and a seventh season of "Secret Lives of the Super Rich."

"It's an exciting time for CNBC as we build our primetime brand, grow our audience and draw in an even younger crowd," said Jim Ackerman, EVP, Primetime Alternative Programming, CNBC. "The world of business will always be a great backdrop for storytelling and we're committed to serving up more titles and characters that capture the entrepreneurial spirit in all of us."

New Series:

"BYOB: Be Your Own Boss" (Premieres Tuesday, February 27 at 10PM ET/PT)

Produced by Brian Graden Media with Brian Graden and Dave Mace as executive producers. Jim Ackerman and Marshall Eisen are the executive producers for CNBC.

Reformed entrepreneur, self-made millionaire, and small-business expert, Dennis Mulgannon helps people escape the rat race and become their own boss in a week, by buying the existing small business of their dreams.

"Staten Island Hustle" (Spring 2018)

Produced by Left Hook Media and Endemol Shine North America with Scott Teti, Matt Odgers and Robin Feinberg as executive producers. Jim Ackerman and Marshall Eisen are the executive producers for CNBC.

"Staten Island Hustle" follows a group of animated, life-long friends and businessmen from Staten Island who've yet to come up with an idea or product too far-fetched for them to invest in. Without MBAs (or even college degrees) these men prove that grit, ingenuity, and street smarts may be the real key to success. Of course, it helps that somebody's always "got a guy" with the right connection or a good hook-up.

"Deadly Rich" (Summer 2018)

Produced for CNBC by Kurtis Productions with Mike West and Tania Lindsay as executive producers. Charles Schaeffer is the executive producer for CNBC.

The rich do everything differently. Even murder. When too much is never enough and the lust for wealth goes beyond all reason, killing becomes the ultimate power play. "Deadly Rich" from the producers of "American Greed" takes viewers inside these cases, navigating every evil twist and salacious turn to reveal the secrets and lies of the moneyed class. In their minds they are killers too rich to jail. And for the victims, money does not protect them, it makes them a target.

Returning Series:

"American Greed" (Season 12 premieres Monday, February 26 at 10PM ET/PT)

Produced for CNBC by Kurtis Productions with Mike West as executive producer. Charles Schaeffer is the executive producer for CNBC.

Whether it's performing a stunt with adrenaline junkie Travis Pastrana, going green with Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger or taking a spin with a Mafia getaway driver, there's no wheel Jay won't get behind to tell the story of our love affair with the automobile.
