“I couldn’t be more excited with the bosses and companies who signed up for the undercover experience this season,” stated Stephen Lambert, creator/executive producer of UNDERCOVER BOSS. “We cover a wide variety of industries, and in addition to the many ‘fish out of water’ moments that the bosses find themselves in, fans can also expect to see employees receiving some of the biggest rewards yet.”
Each week, UNDERCOVER BOSS follows a different executive as they leave the comfort of their corner office for an undercover mission to examine the inner workings of their companies. While working alongside their employees, they see the effects their decisions have on others, where the problems lie within their organizations and get an up-close look at both the good and the bad while discovering and rewarding the unsung heroes who make their companies run.
