Los Angeles -CNBC has ordered a new series about the world of sports betting for its primetime reality slate, the network announced at the TCA press tour Saturday.
Money Talks centers on well-known handicapper Steve Stevens, who runs VIP Sports in Las Vegas. The series is produced by All3 Media America in association with Turn Left Productions and Lost Tribe Productions. Its one-hour pilot will premiere on Tuesday, Sept. 10 at 10 p.m.
CNBC also renewed The Car Chasers for a second season to debut on Tuesday, Oct. 29 at 10 p.m. The series follows a team of car flippers as they travel the country looking for wild rides to flip.
"The Car Chasers developed a loyal fan base and we're excited to build off that momentum and grow the show," said Jim Ackerman, senior VP of primetime alternative programming at CNBC. "Money Talks takes us deep inside the world of sports betting in Las Vegas. It's a world that hasn't been explored in primetime and we're confident that our viewers will be fascinated by this intimate look at high stakes gambling."
