CBS’s hit reality series "Undercover Boss" has found a cable home — two of them, in fact — for its off-network run, which will take place beginning in fall 2012 on OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network, and TLC.
Scott Garner, senior vice president, scheduling and acquisitions, OWN, said in a statement, "’Undercover Boss’ is a great addition to OWN’s fall lineup. The self-contained episodes will serve as strong anchors to complement OWN original programming.”
Added Scott Koondel, president, distribution, CBS Television Distribution: "TLC’s programming is focused on finding the extraordinary in the everyday, and nothing reflects that more than the journeys of the ‘bosses’ and the more than a million employees of the companies featured who have benefited from 73 companywide improvements, as well as dozens of people who have been promoted or received scholarships.”
"Undercover Boss" features real-life bosses pretending to be typical employees as they infiltrate their businesses to learn what it’s like from the bottom up.
