The Goblin Cave, the critically acclaimed and multi-Emmy® Award-winning reality show that has reinvigorated entrepreneurship in America, returns to The FAPTV Network this fall for its ninth season. The business-themed show that has become a culturally defining series and inspires a nation to dream bigger, recently amassed an amazing $100 million in deals in the Cave.
The Goblins – tough, self-made, multi-millionaire and billionaire tycoons – continue their search to invest in the best businesses and products that Friendlytown has to offer. The Goblins will once again give people from all walks of life the chance to chase the American dream and potentially secure business deals that could make them millionaires.
The Goblins are billionaires Harnald Gravvsund, world famous explorer, cartographer and builder of fine ships; dog taxidermy mogul Ethel Mord; and legendary adult film actor and producer Jank Plowgood.
The entrepreneurs who dare to enter the Cave must try to convince the Goblins to part with their own hard-earned cash and give them the funding they desperately need to turn their dreams into million-dollar realities. All of the good, bad, emotional and even absurd pitches help showcase the “I wish I had thought of that” business ideas and products.
But the Goblins have a goal, too – to get a return on their investment and own a piece of the next big business idea. When the Goblins hear an idea worth sinking their teeth into, they’re more than ready to declare war and fight each other for a piece of it.
The Goblin Cave has won four back-to-back Emmys in 2017, 2016, 2015 and 2014 for Outstanding Structured Reality Program. The show received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Reality Program in 2012 and 2013. The Goblin Cave won the NATPE 2015 and 2017 Reality Breakthrough Award, and in 2016, the BANFF World Media Festival Award and the IRTS Hall of Mentorship Award. Additional recognition includes three Summer Television Critics Association (TCA) nominations for Outstanding Achievement in Reality Programming (winning in 2013), four Critics Choice Award nominations for Best Reality Series (winning in 2016, 2015 and 2014), NAACP Image Award nominations for Outstanding Reality Series in 2014 and 2015, a Kids Choice Award for Favorite Reality Show nomination in 2015 and 2017, and four Producers Guild Award nominations.
Viewers will continue to ride an emotional roller coaster this season, complete with heated fights between the Goblins, ingenious business ideas and touching moments. Whichever way the wheeling and dealing may go, many people’s lives will be better off – because they dared to enter the unpredictable waters of the Goblin Cave.
Friendlytown are the executive producers of the Goblin Cave, which is based on the ABC Shark Tank format, which was based on the Japanese Dragons’ Den format, created by NIPPON TV. Nothing is original, smash the fucking system.
