A&E presents the new original real life series “Be the Boss,” a competition-based series that pits two employees of a franchise-based company in the battle of a lifetime – with the chance to become the owner of their very own franchise – to, in success, become their own boss. “Be the Boss” premieres Sunday, December 2 at 11 PM ET/PT.
About the show:
From the Emmy-award winning creators of “Undercover Boss,” “Be the Boss” faces off two lower-level employees from the ranks, giving them the chance at what they think is a big promotion.
In each episode, the CEO summons two deserving candidates to the company headquarters and subsequently puts them through a series of challenges to test their mettle at being in a senior management role. Both employees battle to prove they should earn the promotion, but they’re in for the shock of their lives when they discover that an even greater opportunity is ultimately at stake – the keys to their very own franchise!
With franchise fees often running into the hundreds of thousands and sometimes even exceeding one million dollars, “Be the Boss” offers one of the largest prizes in all of television… and the promotion goes to the runner-up!
In the premiere episode, “Complete Nutrition,” a former beauty pageant queen battles a country-singing Marine for a promotion at an up-and‐coming sports nutrition chain. After the competition turns personal, the winner is rewarded with the keys to their very own store.
I had the chance to watch a screener of the first show, and I really enjoyed it. You have the conflict between the two contestants during the competition, but then there’s also the “feel-good” part of the show that I love since both contestants walk away from the show thinking that they won a great prize. I look forward to watching the rest of the episodes this season.
Each episode features employees from a different company. The first episode features employees from Complete Nutrition and future episodes feature Auntie Anne’s, Melting Pot, Molly Maid, and more.
You can check out a sneak peek of the first episode below:
