Syfy has greenlit The Bazillion Dollar Club, a Silicon Valley-based reality television series about startups and the search for the next incredible idea. The six-episode series will follow Dave McClure of software accelerator 500 Startups and Brady Forrest of hardware incubator Highway1 as they attempt to find, invest, and mentor various startups.
“Part of the fun of science fiction is seeing all of the fantastic gadgets and technologies, and imagining how they could exist in the real world,” said Bill McGoldrick, Syfy’s EVP, Original Content. Added Heather Olander, SVP, Alternative Series Development and Production, Syfy, “The inventors that are part of Dave and Brady’s program are developing products and technology that seem like they are ripped straight from the world of sci-fi, but these innovations will be our future reality.”
According to TechCrunch, the show’s name is a working title.
