ITV Orders New Take on Undercover Boss


ITV has commissioned a brand-new version of the global hit Undercover Boss, the Emmy Award-winning format from Studio Lambert.

Titled Undercover Big Boss, the series will see a new group of chief execs and company bosses go in disguise to work on their very own shop floors, to see what really goes on behind closed doors. The four-part series will feature bosses from Pickfords, Bristol Street Motors, Wyldecrest Parks and Euro Foods Group.

ITV’s factual commissioner, Kate Teckman, said: “As we come out of the pandemic, it’s clear that there’s never been a bigger gap between the multimillionaire bosses and their workers, so this is the perfect time to bring viewers an all-new Undercover Big Boss as we see how they will fare swapping their corporate dinners for packed lunches and what changes they will make for their workers.”

Studio Lambert’s deputy creative director, Mike Cotton, said: “There’s never been a more relevant time to bring Undercover Boss back. It’s a fascinating snapshot of modern working Britain and we’re very grateful to the bosses who were brave enough to don a disguise and embark on this journey amidst the chaos of a pandemic.”
