Network Ten is pleased to confirm that it has secured the tape and format rights to the new CBS reality series 'Undercover Boss'.
Undercover Boss, which launched to 38.6 million viewers in the US, follows high-level chief executives as they slip anonymously into the rank and file of their companies.
Each week a different Executive will leave the comfort of their corner office for an undercover mission to examine the inner workings of their company.
While working alongside their employees, they will see the effects their decisions have on others, where the problems lie within their organisation and get an up-close look at both the good and the bad while discovering the unsung heroes who make their company run.
US companies whose chief executives will make the undercover journey include such corporate giants as Waste Management, 7-Eleven and Hooters. David Mott, chief programming officer said: "We are thrilled to own such a great program. It is, without a doubt, an hour of feel-good television for workers from all walks of life.
"The concept of Undercover Boss is simple and brilliant, and it's gratifying to see these CEOs learn how tough everyday work and life can be," Mr Mott said.
Undercover Boss is a perfect addition to TEN's program schedule and will air later in the year.
