CBS ANNOUNCES THREE ADDITIONAL CELEBRITIES FOR "UNDERCOVER BOSS: CELEBRITY EDITION"

Celebrated Model and Body Activist Ashley Graham, Four-Time GRAMMY-Nominated Singer-Songwriter Jewel, and Stephanie McMahon, the Chief Brand Officer for WWE and a Long-Time Villainous Character on WWE's Programming, Each Headline June Episodes of the Time-Period-Winning Friday Night Reality Series

CBS announces three additional stars for UNDERCOVER BOSS: CELEBRITY EDITION. Joining the series' lineup of celebrities at the top of their chosen fields, who are going undercover to find talented people and make dreams come true, are celebrated model and body activist Ashley Graham; four-time GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter Jewel; and Stephanie McMahon, the first-ever chief brand officer for World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. (WWE), who has played a villainous character on WWE's programming for nearly 20 years.

The schedule follows:

FRIDAY, JUNE 8

· Jewel - Before being discovered and becoming one of the most successful singer-songwriters of all time, earning four GRAMMY nominations and selling over 30 million albums worldwide, Jewel was homeless and living out of her van. Jewel goes undercover to pay it forward as "Andrea," a sassy brunette, as she attempts to discover gifted musicians and artisans to recruit for her Handmade Holiday Tour.

FRIDAY, JUNE 15

· Stephanie McMahon - As chief brand officer of WWE, McMahon helps shape one of the most successful sports and entertainment brands in the world. McMahon grew up in the business as daughter of WWE chairman and CEO Vince McMahon, and her husband is 14-time champion and WWE executive Paul "Triple H" Levesque. Stephanie dons a blonde wig and fakes a southern accent as "Sam," a woman who's trying to learn about WWE for her blog. McMahon's journey starts in search of possible new talent for the WWE roster and ends up making dreams come true for a charity-minded young WWE fan.

FRIDAY, JUNE 22

· Ashley Graham - One of the most accomplished models and body activists ever, Graham was the first size 14 model to be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, paving the way for her to become one of the most influential voices to reshape the fashion and media industries. Ashley was first discovered in a mall in Lincoln, Neb. and wants to pay it forward by going undercover as the raven-haired, face-pierced "Morgan." Morgan is an aspiring model who seeks out like-minded curvy models and meets a trailblazing adolescent who defies the conventional body-type for talented dancers.

The series' celebrities, who are among the nation's best singers, athletes, models and business icons, were each disguised with state-of-the-art prosthetic makeup and custom-made wigs, which took an average of two and a half hours to apply.

The previously aired episodes of this series' first season featured three-time Olympic gold medal gymnast Gabby Douglas, Tony Award-winning, multi-platinum recording artist and actress Idina Menzel, YouTube sensation Bethany Mota and two-time Super Bowl champion and NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders. The episodes were their time period's top broadcasts by considerable margins.

UNDERCOVER BOSS: CELEBRITY EDITION is produced by Studio Lambert/All3Media America. Stephen Lambert, Sean Foley and Greg Goldman are executive producers.
