CBS announced the new reality competition series THE JOB will premiere Friday, Feb. 8 (8:00–9:00 PM ET/PT).
From reality show masters Michael Davies (“Who Wants to be A Millionaire,” “Watch What Happens Live”) and Mark Burnett (“Survivor,” “The Voice”), the series gives candidates selected from around the country a chance to win positions at some of America’s most prestigious companies. Hosted by Emmy Award nominee Lisa Ling (“The View”), each episode will feature five candidates participating in several rounds of elimination challenges before a panel of executives as they compete for their dream job. In addition to the episode’s featured company, representatives from three guest companies from related industries will have the opportunity to make an on-the-spot offer to one of the candidates, who must decide if they will accept the offer or remain in the running for the featured job.
The featured companies and broadcast order will be announced at the start of the New Year.
UNDERCOVER BOSS, which currently airs in the time period, will return on Friday, April 19.
THE JOB is produced by Sony Pictures Television and Embassy Row. Emmy Award winners Michael Davies, Mark Burnett and Jay Bienstock are executive producers.
