Here’s another TV alert. This Sunday (31 October) at 8:00pm, Channel 4 is showing the Under Cover Boss USA with Joe Mandy from Herschend Family Entertainment.
They operate a number of attractions including the amusement parks:
Silver Dollar City
It was shown in the USA a while ago so some people may have seen it already. I don't think it's been shown before on the main British channels, although it may have been.
For those who have not seen the Undercover Boss the premise is that a big cheese from a reasonably large company is going undercover to see how things work on the 'shop floor'. There is a British version as well. The opening sequence to the American version can seem a bit OTT, but don't let it put you off as they are absorbing once you get into them.
The theory is that by doing the 'experiment' they can go back to their board and suggest viable ways to fine tune the business. The staff do know that it's being filmed and do sometimes guess that it is the Under Cover Boss (not sure if they will in this one). They do, however, invent a cover story where they explain that it's being filmed for another purpose (e.g. a documentary to try and reintegrate someone who's been unemployed for years back into the work place).
