Trending: Too much spring in their step? Nike running shoe under scrutiny after record marathon times

What happens when a software accelerator and hardware accelerator join forces in search of a new wave of breakthrough startups?

That’s the premise of “The Bazillion Dollar Club,” an upcoming show on Syfy that features hard-charging Silicon Valley investor Dave McClure of 500 Startups; and Brady Forrest, the former Seattleite who runs the Highway1 hardware accelerator.

bazillionSyfy announced the show last fall, and the first trailer just went up this afternoon. Check it out above.

Based on the sneak peek, it looks like a fun show, with lots of attitude. McClure introduces himself in the trailer himself as a “greedy, blood-sucking venture capitalist,” while Forrest says he’s “looking for the next big invention.”

“I’ll leave the blood-sucking to Dave,” he adds.

The show premieres Sept. 22 on Syfy.
