In the other hand, Florian Fettweis added representing CMM-I: “We are excited to see the principal non-studio format inroads into China. We are optimistic that the Chinese version of ‘Undercover Boss’ will not only be a great show to inspire audiences, but also has the potential to open a new era of formats in China, where the non-studio find its way into the market.”
The format – already airing on more than 200 territories and has local formats in Canada, Australia, Denmark, France and the United States proposes that bosses slip anonymously into the lowest ranks of their workplaces to find out what that is not working and what your employees really think of them, in an experience that will give them a new look for themselves, the company and the spirit of their work force.
