As an executive producer at verbTV, Mr. Meltzer will produce content for VERB’s shoppable entertainment channel. The first among many verbTV programs in development will be Season 3 of “2 Minute Drill,” a reality TV competition created and hosted by Mr. Meltzer, Seasons 1 and 2 of which are currently available for viewing on the Bloomberg Television Network and Amazon Prime Video. Every episode of 2 Minute Drill features five entrepreneurs competing for $50,000 in cash and prizes with only two minutes each to persuade a panel of judges that their business pitch is the best. The judges/mentors, themselves successful entrepreneurs, provide insightful advice to help contestants strengthen their brands and pitches. Bringing the shoppable version of 2 Minute Drill exclusively to verbTV adds a new dimension to the entertainment experience, as viewers will now be able to participate in the program by purchasing the products and services offered by the contestants’ companies, among many other empowering interactions made possible by VERB’s state-of-the-art interactive video technology. In addition to 2 Minute Drill, Mr. Meltzer is expected to develop shoppable, interactive programs centered around e-sports as well as a shoppable version of Season 2 of Mr. Meltzer’s new TV show “Office Hours,” the first late-night entrepreneur talk show that features the best and brightest entrepreneurial minds from business, sports, and entertainment to talk about success, failure, and everything in between (Season 1 premiers on Bloomberg TV and Amazon Prime Video on Friday, October 15, 2021).
