Kevin O’Leary Says His New Show “Money Court” Is “Riveting” Kevin O’Leary Says His New Show “Money Court” Is “Riveting”
Kevin O’Leary has made his decision. His latest CNBC sequence, according to the Shark Tank star, is “riveting.”
In Money Court, O’Leary teams up with Katie Phang, a veteran trial attorney, and Ada Pozo, a retired judge. In the six-episode season, which premieres August 11, the trio will preside over a wide variety of financial conflicts.
Kevin O’Leary, star of ABC’s “Shark Tank,” will settle financial disputes in “Money Court.”
O’Leary and the rest of the Shark Tank cast assess entrepreneurs’ company pitches before determining whether or not to spend their own money in the venture on their hit ABC show. Money Court will see O’Leary and his fellow judges try to settle actual financial conflicts between family members, associates, and business partners.
According to O’Leary, the show couldn’t have come at a better time.
In a statement, O’Leary said that the pandemic caused a large backlog of pending financial conflicts in the court system. “It will take years to clear this backlog. Meanwhile, nothing suffocates a company’s intrinsic value and productivity like a money dispute. It damages shareholder value by tearing families apart, disrupting lifetime relationships, and tearing families apart.”
The Money Court judges would consider all aspects of each case “fairly and objectively,” according to O’Leary, before issuing a verdict that “allows the litigants to return to work.” All of the contestants have decided to follow the judges’ decision. But don’t expect the process to be easy or painless.
“Getting to resolution can be gut wrenching and emotional but absolutely necessary,” O’Leary said. “It makes for incredible television and the outcomes are most often a complete surprise.”
