The CEO of Domino’s Pizza, Don Meij, will be the first Aussie to become an Undercover Boss in the local adaptation of the US reality series.
Starting as a delivery driver, he has been in the business for over 20 years. For the TEN series he swaps his sporty Lamborghini for a Domino’s delivery van, and works in several stores across Queensland and ACT.
David Mott, chief programming officer said: “I’m delighted with the local production.
“Southern Star have delivered a series faithful to the US version, with warmth, compassion but with an Australian sensibility that makes the local version that much more compelling. Our CEOs have been extraordinary in giving of their time I know this has been a life changing experience for them.
“What we have here is something quite special that I know Australians will love and embrace.”
Appearing in upcoming episodes are CEOs from Boost Juice, Veolia Environmental Services Australia and Toga Hospitality Group. Can we have a TV boss too?
The series begins on Monday October 18.
