'Shark Tank': What's Behind the Success of ABC Show (video)
It took a couple of years for Sony Pictures Television to sell Japanese entrepreneurial format 'Shark Tank' (also known as 'Dragons' Den') in the USA. Currently in its sixth season, it's the highest-rated reality programme on ABC with an average 2.3 season-to-date rating in the 18-49 target group.

Daymond John, Mark Cuban, Kevin O'Leary and Executive Producer Clay Newbill discussed all aspects of 'Shark Tank' at the international content market NATPE 2015 in Miami.
