ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. — October 29, 2018 — CNBC's hit series "The Profit" returns for its sixth season on Tuesday, December 4 at 10 PM ET/PT. Over the course of the series, serial entrepreneur Marcus Lemonis has invested $75 million of his own money helping small business owners save and grow their companies – and now he's ready to put even more on the line. This season, the 2018 Critic's Choice Awards-nominated series features 12 all-new hours, including a "sequel" of sorts to one of the show's most explosive episodes – The Casery, from Season 5.

The small businesses featured this season include (*alphabetical order; air dates to be announced):

· Ben's Garden - Brooklyn, NY

· Everkin – Los Angeles, CA

· Feat Socks - Venice, CA

· Lyles BBQ - Lexington, KY

· NYC Bagel Deli - Chicago, IL

· Queork - New Orleans, LA

· Santa's Toys - Santa Claus, IN

· Smithfly Designs - Troy, OH

· Snowdays NYC - New York, NY

Using his famous "3 P's" principle – People, Process, Product – Marcus digs deep into every aspect of the business and carefully evaluates each employee. Whether the problem is poor leadership or financial mismanagement, it doesn't take long for him to figure out what the company is doing wrong and establish a plan for success. And that plan will work… as long as everyone is on board.

When Marcus Lemonis isn't running his multi-billion dollar company, Camping World, he goes on the hunt for struggling businesses that are desperate for cash and ripe for a deal. In each episode, Lemonis makes an offer that's impossible to refuse; his cash for a piece of the business and a percentage of the profits. And once inside these companies, he'll do almost anything to save the business and make himself a profit; even if it means firing the president, promoting the secretary or doing the work himself.

"The Profit" is produced for CNBC by Machete Productions with Amber Mazzola serving as executive producer. Jim Ackerman and Luke Bauer are the executive producers for CNBC.
