Chris Carlson, the showrunner behind CBS reality series “Undercover Boss,” will lead a new production company, Commonwealth Unscripted, that will be part of the large reality-production outlet All3Media America.
Commonwealth will create, develop and sell original unscripted ideas and produce them in partnership with All3Media America. Carlson will continue to serve as executive producer of “Undercover Boss.” Since joining the show in its second season, Carlson has nabbed five Emmy nominations and two wins.
Commonwealth Unscripted becomes the eleventh company under the All3Media America umbrella. The company will be based out of the All3Media America Los Angeles offices.
All3Media America companies include Bentley, Company Pictures, ID-TV, Lime, Maverick, MME, North One, Objective, South Pacific Pictures and Studio Lambert Associates. The company currently has series in production or development with a large number of broadcast and cable networks, including “Undercover Boss.” All3Media America’s formats and finished programs are distributed internationally by All3Media International. All3Media is owned jointly between Discovery Communications and Liberty Global.
