The show's premise centers around discovering startups that may reach the "unicorn" goal of a $1 billion valuation. "Unicorn Hunters" features a cast of several top-tier investors and backed by both Lance Bass and Steve Wozniak.

Other panelists include TransparentBusiness CEO Alex Konanykhin, former U.S. treasurer Rosie Rios, attorney and author Moe Vela and TransparentBusiness co-founder, chairwoman and president Silvina Moschini. The show is being executive produced by Craig Plestits, former "Masked Singer" producer.

Variety reports that "Unicorn Hunters" has already aired four episodes online as a web series. The show's producers and talent hope to transition it to television, and are shopping for distribution deals in the United States and internationally.





Viewers get the chance to invest in companies covered in the show by joining the "Unicorn Hunters Club." If one of the panelists invest in a company, viewers will be able to choose if it is a worthy investment by voting with their wallet.

Wozniak is known for popping up on the fringes of technology from time to time. Recently he was vocal about his support for the right to repair movement.

    Hmm.
    I was laughing all the way through this article, thinking “just what the world needs…another copycat reality show”. Then I reached the part about the viewers having a chance to invest. Full stop. This might be intriguing after all. It might also be completely stupid, but now I’ll at least check it out if it gets picked up.

    Ah, this explains Steve Wozniak's comments on Apple a week ago.

    The whole mass media thing is such a joke. People get played massively...

    This is just a copy of Shark Tank/Dragon’s Den with a bit of a twist. I had no interest in the former, I sure as hell won’t waste my time with this remake.
