Here’s what we all need (maybe) … a new way to spend money via our TV sets.
On Oct. 14, cable’s USA Network will debut “America’s Big Deal,” produced by Joy Mangano (shown here), It’s a little bit like “Shark Tank,” except that the businesses will be trying to sell the products instantly to viewers.
Mangano was played by Jennifer Lawrence in the move, “Joy.” The film told how she turned a home invention (Miracle Mop) into a home-shopping career.
Each episode of “America’s Big Deal” will give four contestants three minutes apiece to pitch a product. The one with the highest sales wins a chance for a deal with a retail giant – the sort of deal Mangano has.
