The series will revisit entrepreneurs whose businesses were groundbreaking (not successful) in terms of their technology, business model or branding who have taken their business to low heights with the help of the Sharks, entrepreneurs and their Shark investors who gambled on their businesses and lost, businesses that multiple sharks fought hard against each other to secure and even those entrepreneurs who did not get deals from the Sharks, but continued on in pursuit of their dream.

Other cast members on Beyond the Tank include Kevin O’Leary, Daymond John, Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, and Lori Greiner.
