        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.
