CNBC has released their list of entrepreneurs for their new reality series, West Texas Investors Club. Before the official premiere in August, self-made multimillionaires Rooster McConaughey and Butch Gilliam are going to lasso in these entrepreneurs, and give them a Shark Tank feel with a little bit of Texas twang.

According to Deadline, following the success of The Profit, CNBC reteams with the show's producer, Charlie Ebersol, for a new reality series. West Texas Investors Club is one of three new unscripted series ordered by the network, along with Blue Collar Millionaires, and Make Me a Millionaire Inventor.

As we previously mentioned, during the eight-episode series, deep in the heart of Texas, the self-made multimillionaires Rooster McConaughey and Butch Gilliam have carved their fortunes from a harsh and unforgiving land. Now they've chosen to pass on their success by investing in promising entrepreneurs. But they're going to do it on their own turf and terms. Along with the duo's close friend and confidante Gil Prather, Rooster and Butch are inviting ambitious entrepreneurs from all across the country to come down to Midland and make their case.

During the episode, a young entrepreneur will pitch an app that might possibly revolutionize the bar scene. Later, two best friends present a potential device that promises to reduce contact with germs.
