USA Network's "America's Big Deal" is a first-of-its-kind shoppable LIVE competition series “America’s Big Deal” from world renowned inventor and entrepreneur Joy Mangano and hosted by Emmy Award-nominated “Access Hollywood” journalist Scott Evans. Several of America’s biggest retail giants, QVC and HSN, Lowe’s and Macy’s have joined forces like never before to be a part of this groundbreaking series that has a mission to lift up the nation’s greatest inventors and small businesses by inviting them to sell their products live on-air to home viewers through One Platform Commerce @ NBCU. Each week competitors take the stage to pitch their product to America and the person with the highest dollar sales at the end of the show wins the chance to strike a life-changing purchase order deal with one of the retail giants.

“America’s Big Deal” introduces the at-home audience to aspiring entrepreneurs who, after facing a challenging year for small businesses, are eager to sell their ingenious, ready-to-ship products live in primetime. Their inventive products cross a wide range of product categories, including home solutions, electronics, games, pets and many more. Knowing a dream, nationwide retail purchase order is on the line for the entrepreneur who makes the highest dollar sales, these inventors prepare bold and innovative product pitches. By purchasing their favorite products each week using ShoppableTV and NBCUniversal Checkout, live viewers at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT take an active role in deciding which entrepreneur stands before the retail panel as the night’s winner.
