From the producers of the Emmy-winning reality series, “Shark Tank,” comes the launch of a new companion series for ABC, “Beyond the Tank.” The ten one-hour episodes from Sony Pictures Television and United Artists Media Group will explore the opportunities and challenges that come after striking a deal on “Shark Tank.” The series will air on ABC.

Audiences familiar with the compelling ups and downs of the negotiations will be further engaged in the drama that takes place after the entrepreneurs’ appearance on “Shark Tank.” What lies in the aftermath of their investment?

“Beyond the Tank” will feature a look back at past “Shark Tank” pitches and deals to examine the highs and lows that can come from an appearance in the tank. The series will revisit entrepreneurs whose businesses were groundbreaking in terms of their technology, business model or branding who have taken their business to new heights with the help of the Sharks, entrepreneurs and their Shark investors who gambled on their businesses and lost, businesses that multiple sharks fought hard against each other to secure and even those entrepreneurs who did not get deals from the Sharks, but continued on in pursuit of their dream.

FX-TheBridge_DDOverlap_1069_F_adjcopy

FX has announced that it will not be renewing its series The Bridge for a third season. Producers of the drama are looking at other options.

“We thank our partners at FX for their tireless efforts in developing and launching ‘The Bridge’ with us. From its fresh, unique voice to its deep and diverse ensemble cast, this is a series that we are all very proud of,” said Shine America, which co-produced the series, in a statement. "From its fresh, unique voice to its deep and diverse ensemble cast, this is a series that we are all very proud of."

The series was based on the popular Danish-Swedish series of the same name and followed two detectives on opposite sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. Although The Bridge was a favorite with the critics, it never pulled in the audience and numbers the network was looking for. The series drew 1.5 million viewers for the season two premiere and struggled to crack 1 million viewers near the end of the second season.
