Variety reports that "Unicorn Hunters" has already aired four episodes online as a web series. The show's producers and talent hope to transition it to television, and are shopping for distribution deals in the United States and internationally.

Viewers get the chance to invest in companies covered in the show by joining the "Unicorn Hunters Club." If one of the panelists invest in a company, viewers will be able to choose if it is a worthy investment by voting with their wallet.
