White-collar crime can lead to a company's downfall and cost investors billions of dollars, often involving elaborate scams to bilk people out of their money. This series, an extension of CNBC's "American Greed" franchise, tells the stories of alleged white-color criminals through interviews with people representing law enforcement, prosecutors and victims of the scams. Among the featured stories are a married couple who funded their lavish lifestyle by committing mortgage fraud, and a mutual fund manager accused of scamming investors out of $65 million.

"Secret Lives of the Super Rich" perhaps can be summed up as: " `Cribs,' featuring people who probably have never used the word to describe their homes."

Featured abodes include the largest home in America, a $150 million megamansion and exclusive properties in the nation's richest town.
Some people are born into a rich family and inherit millions of dollars. Other people aren't wealthy by birth and need to work hard to earn their own millions. That latter group can be divided further by job, into groups of white-collar millionaires and blue-collar millionaires. It's those blue-collar workers who have worked their way up the money ladder who are the focus of his half-hour series. The docuseries profiles men and women who have made their fortunes through a can-do mindset and hard work, often having to roll up their sleeves -- metaphorically, at least, if not literally. The show also highlights how they spend their hard-earned money when having fun off the clock.
Being the chairman and CEO of multibillion-dollar corporation Camping World takes up a lot of Marcus Lemonis' time. But when he's not running the company, he's searching for struggling businesses in need of cash. Lemonis tries to help turn each company around by offering cash for a piece of the business and a percentage of the profits. Now he's bringing that process to TV with this series, in which he puts millions of dollars of his own money on the line. Once he's working with the company, he does whatever is necessary to save the business and make a profit for himself -- even if it means firing the president. Although some of his changes could be considered radical, the companies should be willing to go along with them because in the last 10 years, Lemonis has successfully turned around more than 100 companies. To quote the not-so-humble Lemonis, "When I have skin in the game, my way is the only way your business will survive."
Since launching "The Profit" in 2013, serial entrepreneur Marcus Lemonis has expanded his portfolio of businesses significantly, having invested in a number of companies on the series. Now, he's searching for a partner who can help him manage his rapidly expanding empire. To find that person, Marcus is sticking with the same format that has led to his business expansion: a reality show. Although thousands of hopefuls from across America applied for the position, only 10 people have been invited to Chicago to take part in the final interview process, which plays out over the course of five episodes of "The Partner." At stake for the contestant who ultimately emerges victorious is the aforementioned role with Lemonis' company, which includes a $500,000 contract and an equity stake in the enterprise. Lemonis says he is looking for someone with the same drive and passion as the entrepreneurs with whom he has partnered.
Some inventions make lots of money for the people who create them, but others are less successful and eventually given up on by their inventors.

They then locate the inventors, giving them resources and advice that can help take the products to the next level. After building, testing and perfecting the products, the inventors are given the opportunity to pitch their improved products with the ultimate goal of getting them on the market -- giving the inventors a second chance at making millions from their ideas.
Self-made millionaires Mike "Rooster" McConaughey -- brother of Oscar-winning actor Matthew -- and Wayne "Butch" Gilliam made their fortunes deep in the heart of Texas.

Think of it as "Shark Tank" with cowboy hats instead of tailored suits. What the hopefuls don't realize, though, is that a good product and a positive balance sheet aren't enough to get an investment from McConaughey and Gilliam; the guys only make a deal after getting a true measure of an entrepreneur's character.

After striking a deal with the property owner, which includes getting a piece of the property and a percentage of the profits, Torres does whatever is needed to get the property out of the red, even if doing so requires getting rid of the existing contractors and doing the work himself.
