STATUS: previously in development (2011-2012 season)
DEVELOPMENT STAGE: unspecified
DESCRIPTION: (from Sundance's press release, April 2011) Each of the six companies ultimately selected will have its own television episode dedicated to showcasing its business and how it's coping with today's economic challenges. @radical.media, the award-winning producers behind numerous documentaries and television programming (which includes new series with Oprah Winfrey as well as the acclaimed, long-running television series Iconoclasts), have reteamed with Sundance Channel on this new TV series featuring a proven business turnaround expert. This titan of finance manages a $7 billion fund and has a remarkable track record for identifying undervalued companies and reinvigorating them to growth and unprecedented profitability. With an ivy-league MBA complemented by a straight-shooting, practical approach, this celebrated authority has successfully revived 150 companies. The show is looking for established mid-sized enterprises (with approximately 30 to 200 employees) that are interested in strategic support to help them innovate, expand, and thrive in these difficult economic times. Criteria for selection will be rigorous, though special consideration will be given to inspirational stories.
