FOX.com to Host Final Episodes of 'My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss' and 'Playing It Straight'

[via press release from FOX]

FOX.COM TO HOST FINAL EPISODES OF "MY BIG FAT OBNOXIOUS BOSS" AND "PLAYING IT STRAIGHT"

Viewers can get the closure they've been waiting for, when the final five unaired episodes of MY BIG FAT OBNOXIOUS BOSS and all eight episodes of PLAYING IT STRAIGHT are made available online at www.FOX.com/bigfat/ and www.FOX.com/playingitstraight. PLAYING IT STRAIGHT will be offered as a pay-per-view with all the episodes accessible for viewers beginning Monday, Jan. 17. The boardroom shenanigans and deal-breaking joke from MY BIG FAT OBNOXIOUS BOSS will be freely available and will follow shortly after.

The final episodes of MY BIG FAT OBNOXIOUS BOSS will have the seven business-savvy finalists enduring more absurd pranks and competing in silly sales schemes for what they think is the job of a lifetime at billion-dollar company IOCOR. Contestants are unaware that the demeaning and pompous boss, "Mr. N. Paul Todd" (real-life actor William August), is a fraud, that IOCOR does not exist, and there is no open position; the only real reward is a $250,000 cash prize. In the remaining five episodes, challenges include creating art from hot garbage and an ad campaign for cosmetic surgery for the deceased. All the while, "Mr. Todd" provokes participants when he exposes more absurdities with the reintroduction of his "family" as well as his senseless boardroom rationale.

In a final surprise, the fate of these seven career driven contestants is being decided by a mystery boss, promising to be one of the show's most embarrassing moments.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, things aren't exactly as they appear when FOX puts a young single female college student's "gaydar" to the test on PLAYING IT STRAIGHT. Jackie has to determine which of her suitors are straight and which guys are gay. If she chooses a straight man, the couple will be able to split a million dollars. However, if a gay guy fools his way to the finish line, he leaves $1 million richer. With serious cash up for grabs, first impressions have never been more important.

Jackie's suitors are 14 men � some looking for love, some on a quest for money, and all trying to guess who is PLAYING IT STRAIGHT. These stallions vie for Jackie's affections by participating in group activities and one-on-one dates that will simultaneously tempt her heart and test her "gaydar."

Some will come out with nothing, some will come out of the closet, but only one will come out victorious. As for Jackie, she will either leave with love, money or her "gaydar" in need of serious repair.

MY BIG FAT OBNOXIOUS BOSS is produced by Rocket Science Laboratories. Jean-Michel Michenaud and Chris Cowan serve as executive producers.

Jeremy Mills and Ciara Byrne are executive producers of PLAYING IT STRAIGHT, which is a Lion Television production.
