ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. - September 19, 2016 - CNBC's original primetime series "Make Me A Millionaire Inventor" is back for season two on Thursday, October 6 at 10PM ET/PT with eight new one-hour episodes. Hosted by engineering experts Deanne Bell and George Zaidan, "Make Me A Millionaire Inventor" is on a mission to find the best inventions never made, and bring them to market.

In each episode, Bell and Zaidan scour the country looking for amazing ideas they're convinced can make big money. They'll track down the inventors and give them a second chance to bring their ideas and dreams to life. The inventors will be given the resources and help they need to take their products from concept to reality; they'll prototype (build), test and perfect their inventions while preparing for the biggest pitch of their lives.
