CNBC's Hit Reality THE PROFIT Debuts On Universo As EL SOCIO With Business Expert Marcus Lemonis This Sunday

UNIVERSO, announced today the premiere "El Socio," hosted by business tycoon from Miami, Marcus Lemonis this Sunday, July 22 at 10PM/9C. For the first time on Spanish-language television in the U.S., the cut-throat entrepreneur will invest his time - and money - into 18 different businesses ranging from struggling restaurants to family-owned store fronts but with one catch; his money, his rules.

In exchange for the risky investment, "El Socio" is obligated to own a piece of the business and a percentage of the profits. Once the owners take his deal, Lemonis has full control of the company and will do whatever it takes to turn a failing business into a successful profit, even if it includes doing the work himself or firing the president. Catch the season premiere this Sunday, to watch one hopeful business owner entrust Lemonis with his entire life savings. Stay tuned to discover if the business mastermind will be able to save the company or drive it into the ground because as Marcus Lemonis says, "If you don't believe in taking risks, then you're not really an entrepreneur."
