In UNDERCOVER BOSS, each week a different executive will 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 will see the effects that their decisions have on others, where the problems lie within their organization and get an up-close look at both the good and the bad while discovering the unsung heroes who make their companies run. UNDERCOVER BOSS is produced by Studio Lambert, Ltd. Stephen Lambert is executive producer.

THE AMAZING RACE, which recently concluded its 15th edition with across-the-board ratings gains over last year, returns with its 16th installment Sunday, Feb. 14 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT).

SURVIVOR: HEROES VS. VILLAINS, the 20th edition of the ground breaking series that changed the face of reality television, premieres with a two-hour episode, Thursday, Feb. 11 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT). HEROES VS. VILLAINS will reunite some of the most memorable, heroic and controversial castaways from previous SURVIVOR seasons.

SURVIVOR is hosted by Emmy Award-winning host Jeff Probst and produced by SEG, Inc. Mark Burnett is executive producer and David Burris and Leisa Francis are co-executive producers.

The SURVIVOR premiere will be preceded by a one-hour special, SURVIVING SURVIVOR (working title), on Thursday, Feb. 4 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), revisiting some of the greatest moments in SURVIVOR history and following up on life after SURVIVOR with some of the most memorable castaways.

LIVE FOR THE MOMENT reveals how one person's life-changing event inspired them to live life to the fullest. Host Jeff Probst takes someone on a series of adventures and experiences that create special life moments with their family and friends.
