'Shark Tank' casting call held in the Bronx

More than 100 entrepreneurs on Wednesday got the chance to impress casting directors of the hit ABC series "Shark Tank."



The casting call was held at the Old Bronx Borough Courthouse on 161st Street.



If they move onto the show, the entrepreneurs will present their ideas to the five "sharks" in hopes of getting one of them to invest in their business.



News 12 is told that about 40,000 people each year try out, but only a few are selected.
