DESCRIPTION: (from BBC America's press release, September 2009) Dragons' Den makes its sixth season U.S. premiere on BBC AMERICA. The Dragons give would-be entrepreneurs the chance of a lifetime to pitch their ideas in hopes of making their business plans a reality. Despite the economic downturn, the Den, once again proves to be an oasis of investment. But only for those entrepreneurs with the very best business ideas and inventions, who are prepared to put it all on the line by pitching the notoriously tough-talking Dragons. This season the Dragons are pitched a talking tree, a machine that turns air into water, a non-slip travel cushion and a company that's aiming to transform the nation's gardens by putting a twist on the traditional garden fence.
