[via press release from FOX]

FOX TRUMPS THE COMPETITION WHEN NEW UNSCRIPTED SERIES "MY BIG FAT OBNOXIOUS BOSS" PREMIERES NOVEMBER 7

Contestants Seeking Apprenticeship Get More Than They Bargain For

FOX busts down the boardroom doors and invites viewers into the outrageous unscripted comedy MY BIG FAT OBNOXIOUS BOSS, a new series from the producers of the hit FOX reality spoof "My Big Fat Obnoxious Fianc�." With business-oriented reality shows ripe for the picking and overly confident young entrepreneurs believing they can conquer the world, MY BIG FAT OBNOXIOUS BOSS gets down to funny business Sunday, Nov. 7 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

"What 'My Big Fat Obnoxious Fianc�' did for romance-reality, MY BIG FAT OBNOXIOUS BOSS will do for business-reality," said Gail Berman, President of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. "When we saw the footage, we realized it belongs on the funniest night on television, FOX's Sunday night."

This comical hybrid of scripted, improvisational and reality series stars "Mr. N. Paul Todd," introduced as the founder and CEO of a multibillion-dollar company, IOCOR. The professional prank begins when 12 real contestants - young, overachieving, type-A business professionals - arrive in Chicago and begin competing in frustrating and ridiculous challenges. This dozen have the drive, self-assurance and ego that it takes to think they can jump to the top of the corporate ladder. They take their relationship with "Mr. Todd" and the competition seriously, plotting their strategies to win his approval, an enormous cash prize and a lucrative opportunity to join this powerful, yet unknown, investment organization.

The $250,000 cash prize is real, but that's about it.

Unbeknownst to these "business savvy" participants, IOCOR is a fictitious company and "Mr. Todd" is really actor William August setting out to dupe the 12 know-it-all participants. As Steven Bailey did in "My Big Fat Obnoxious Fianc�," August uses his improvisational skills to test the limits of the unsuspecting candidates through unrealistic conversations, circumstances, and of course, questionable business challenges with humiliating consequences for the losing team.

Through a series of tasks, this phony climb to the top will feature unsuspecting teams utilizing their highly touted business backgrounds, educations and strategies to compete against each other. Each week, the losing team sends two finalists to the boardroom to plead their case with "Mr. Todd" before one of them is eliminated. What they don't know is that "Mr. Todd" isn't the one really making the decisions. It will remain a secret to the contestants until the last elimination that a mystery boss has actually been deciding their fate. In an eye-opening, jaw-dropping turn, the identity of the real boss will be the biggest surprise of all.

MY BIG FAT OBNOXIOUS BOSS is produced by Rocket Science Laboratories. Jean-Michel Michenaud and Chris Cowan serve as executive producers.
