CBC orders up two more episodes of ‘Dragons’ Den’

TORONTO (CP) _ The CBC has added two more episodes of "Dragons’ Den," the series that documents would-be entrepreneurs from across Canada as they pitch their brainstorms to a panel of successful business moguls.

The public broadcaster is also re-running the show’s debut episode in the hopes of attracting more viewers. "Dragon’s Den" is already the fastest-growing program in the CBC’s schedule, getting a total of 657,000 viewers when the show aired last Wednesday and then repeated again on Thursday and Sunday.

The inaugural show will be rebroadcast next Wednesday, Nov. 15, and features, among other would-be business gurus, a Toronto woman trying to sell the "Dragons" on her idea for napping centres aimed at overworked office workers. The show is a Canadian version of a British series of the same name, and features a parade of Donald Trump wannabes trying to convince the panel they’ve got a great idea.

One brainchild? A so-called snow limo developed by two Whistler brothers aimed at people who don’t ski or snowboard but might also enjoy whizzing down the slopes.

"The last time I saw a piece of equipment like that was in Silence of the Lambs," Laurence Lewin, co-founder/ president of lingerie chain La Senza, said of the limo.
