"CNBC Titans" profiles remarkable people who made careers turning the “unthinkable” into reality and companies that grew from humble roots to worldwide recognition.

Get the real stories behind some of the most famous icons, the greatest companies and the giants of industry who helped build them. Discover the key to their fortune and the passion that drove their success. They changed the world and how you do business – and lived to tell about it. Ted Turner, George Foreman, Donald Trump , Hugh Hefner, and Merv Griffin are some of the giants of industry and culture who we have profiled.

Herb Kelleher (Premieres Thursday, July 14th): “CNBC Titans” profiles Herb Kelleher, the founder and former CEO of Southwest Airlines, who grew the company from a small regional carrier with just four jets into an industry leader. A straight-talking iconoclast, Kelleher is adored by Southwest employees. And he's respected on Wall Street -- Southwest has had an unprecedented 38 straight years of profitability, a record no other U.S. airline can touch.

Quincy Jones (Premieres Thursday, July 21st): Jazz musician, arranger, the first black executive of a major record company, producer, entrepreneur, and social activist, Quincy Jones is a one person history of the entertainment industry over the past 60 years, going from be-bop to hip-hop. With more Grammy nominations and awards than anyone else alive, he produced the biggest selling album of all time, Michael Jackson’s Thriller, and the landmark We Are The World. As a film and TV producer, he introduced the world to Oprah Winfrey in The Color Purple and Will Smith in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Jones’ life—many of his greatest accomplishments happened after recovering from a near fatal brain aneurism—is one of the great African-American success stories.

Hershey (Premieres Thursday, July 28th): Hershey. Few words sound sweeter. But behind the mouthwatering chocolate is a man, Milton S. Hershey, whose obsessive search for the perfect confectionary turned a pastoral Pennsylvania town into the candy-making capital of the world. From a state-of-the-art medical center, to a sprawling amusement park, Hershey, Pennsylvania, is living proof that a single company can build a utopia built on the foundation of milk and sugar.
