New series will revolve around a Las Vegas sports handicapper
CNBC is betting on more reality TV.
The network is expanding its reality slate with an order for the new series "Money Talks," which "takes viewers inside the world of sports betting and Steve Stevens, a well-known handicapper who runs VIP Sports in Las Vegas," according to the network.
The series will premiere with a one-hour pilot Sept. 10 at 10 p.m.
The network has also ordered a second season of "The Car Chasers," which stars Jeff Allen and Perry Barndt as they search for cars to fix and flip.
The announcements were made today by Jim Ackerman, CNBC’s senior vice president of primetime alternative programming.
"The Car Chasers’ developed a loyal fan base and we’re excited to build off that momentum and grow the show," CNBC's senior vice president of primetime alternative programming Jim Ackerman said. "'Money Talks' takes us deep inside the world of sports betting in Las Vegas. It’s a world that hasn’t been explored in primetime and we’re confident that our viewers will be fascinated by this intimate look at high stakes gambling."
Another CNBC reality show, "The Profit," will hit the air Tuesday at 10 p.m.
