THE TOUGHEST JOB YOUR BOSS WILL EVER DO IS YOURS..."UNDERCOVER BOSS"

New CBS Reality Series Premieres at a Special Time Following the Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 7

Series Moves to Its Regular Sunday (9:00-10:00 PM) Time Period Feb. 14

America's Chief Executives Ditch Their Corner Offices For a Spot on the Frontlines of Their Work Force

Participating Companies Whose Chief Executives Go Undercover in Their Own Organization Include Waste Management, White Castle, 7-Eleven, Hooters and Churchill Downs

The new CBS reality series, UNDERCOVER BOSS, which follows high-level chief executives as they slip anonymously into the rank and file of their companies, will debut at a special time following the Super Bowl, Sunday, Feb. 7 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/7:00-8:00 PM, PT, time approximate after Post Game coverage) on the CBS Television Network.

The series moves to its regular Sunday (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) time period on Feb. 14.

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 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 company run.

Companies whose chief executives will make the undercover journey include such corporate giants as Waste Management (Larry O'Donnell, President and C.O.O.), 7-Eleven (Joseph M. DePinto, President and C.E.O.), Hooters (Coby G. Brooks, President and C.E.O.), White Castle (Dave Rife, Owner/Executive Board Member) and Churchill Downs (William C. Carstanjen, C.O.O.).

The premiere episode of UNDERCOVER BOSS will follow Larry O'Donnell, the President and C.O.O. of Waste Management, as he works alongside his employees, cleaning porta-potties, sorting waste at one of their recycling plants, collecting garbage from a landfill and even being fired for the first time in his life. O'Donnell's mission is to garner an up-close look at his company and workforce to see how and where improvements can be made from both an operational and morale standpoint.

"Everyone has daydreamed about watching the boss do their job," said Nina Tassler, President, CBS Entertainment. "The journey of watching a chief executive walk a mile in their employees' shoes is always very revealing, often humorous and, in some cases, very inspiring."

Stephen Lambert is executive producer for Studio Lambert, Ltd.
