Global ‘Boss’ comes to TLC, OWN

Intl'l versions of CBS reality series arrive on cable

TLC and OWN are bringing global editions of “Undercover Boss” to their respective nets.

The reality skein that has been a hit for CBS will be moving to the cable side as a spinoff series titled “Undercover Boss: Abroad,” using footage from the U.K. and Australia. Canadian installments of the show will also be included at a later date in the spring.

Skein is set to premiere on TLC Feb. 13 as the net will air back-to-back episodes for 14 weeks at 9 p.m. Mondays. Show will launch on OWN March 13. Among the companies to be featured are Domino’s Pizza, Best Western Hotels and Isuzu. Premise of the show is that top-ranking execs from selected companies blend in with the working class and understand what it takes to do their job.

The original Eye version of “Undercover Boss” currently airs on OWN as an occasional special or as a marathon. At TLC, “Boss” began as a regularly scheduled series last fall and both Discovery-owned cablers will air it again this fall.

Show is produced by Studio Lambert and exec produced by Stephen Lambert and Eli Holzman.

TLC has also announced they are going forward with “Southie Pride,” from “Jersey Shore” producer SallyAnn Salsano. Series will look at the provincial characters who live in the South Boston neighbhorhood that was portrayed in the Ben Affleck film “Gone Baby Gone.”

Casting is currently underway. Cabler has ordered eight episodes.
