"Celebrity Undercover Boss" will feature Grammy Award-winning musician Darius Rucker on Friday, May 12, and chef and restaurateur Marcus Samuelsson on Friday, May 19. For the first time on the series, state-of-the-art prosthetic makeup was used to disguise Rucker and Samuelsson so they would not be recognized, despite their fame.

"Celebrity Undercover Boss: Darius Rucker" - Grammy Award-winning musician Darius Rucker, former lead singer for Hootie & the Blowfish turned country music superstar, travels to Austin, Texas on an undercover journey to discover the next great musical acts. During his time undercover, Darius runs an open mic night, works as a roadie, and strolls along Austin's famous Sixth Street in search of standout street performers, on UNDERCOVER BOSS, Friday, May 12 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

"Celebrity Undercover Boss: Marcus Samuelsson" - Internationally acclaimed chef and restaurateur Marcus Samuelsson goes undercover to find and mentor new culinary talent.

Since re-introducing himself to the world as a country artist, he has released four consecutive albums to top the Billboard Country Albums chart and earned a whole new legion of fans. In 2014, Rucker won his third career GRAMMY award for Best Solo Country Performance, for his triple platinum selling cover of Old Crow Medicine Show's "Wagon Wheel," off his album True Believers. Rucker's first two country albums, Learn To Live and Charleston, SC 1966, produced five #1 singles including "Come Back Song," "This," "Alright," "It Won't Be Like This For Long" and "Don't Think I Don't Think About It." Southern Style, his fourth studio country album, features his latest #1 single "Homegrown Honey," co-written by Rucker, label mate Charles Kelley of Lady Antebellum and Nathan Chapman.
