INDIANAPOLIS – ABC’s “Shark Tank,” airing this fall on RTV6, is making one final stop in Indianapolis to hear pitches for Season 11.

The open call will take place on July 16 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Gates will open at 6 a.m. Wristbands will be distributed starting at 9 a.m. Interviews will begin at 10 a.m.

“We are very excited to be heading to Indianapolis for our last open call of Season 11 of ‘Shark Tank,’” supervising Casting Producer Mindy Zemrak said in a statement. “We have never been to Indiana for an open call and we are thrilled to see what the entrepreneurs in the Circle City have to offer. The ‘Shark Tank’ casting team loves heading to the Midwest for our open calls and this will be our only one this season.”

Producers of ABC’s Emmy-award winning “Shark Tank” are looking for the next entrepreneur, inventor, businessperson or innovator with a million-dollar idea.

The “sharks” include Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec, Daymond John and Kevin O’Leary.

“RTV6 is ecstatic ABC picked Indianapolis as their final-destination,” said Courtney Leitschuh, RTV6’s creative services director. “Our Hiring Hoosiers initiative consistently showcases creative locals, Indiana business owners and entrepreneurial talent looking for their big break. Indiana will bring its A-game!”
