UK entrepreneur Peter Jones gets US cable show

UK businessman and Dragon’s Den star Peter Jones is making business makeover show for US cable network TNT called Save Our Business (WT).

The reality show will see the telecoms entrepreneur travel across the US attempting to save small businesses that are struggling.

Each week, in the six-episode series, Jones will assess the major problems facing a struggling company and design a plan to help save it from collapsing.

The show will be made by US producer A. Smith & Company, which is part of Tinopolis, the UK production and distribution group that recently acquired Passion Distribution.

The US series will launch on Turner-owned TNT in late 2013.
