NEW MIDSEASON REALITY SERIES
THE JOB
From reality show masters Michael Davies ("Who Wants To Be A Millionaire," "Watch What Happens Live") and Mark Burnett ("Survivor," "The Voice") comes a new reality series, THE JOB, where every week talented candidates are chosen from across the country for a chance to win their dream job at one of America's most prestigious companies. Host Lisa Ling guides participants through several rounds of the most intense interviews of their lives, including challenges ranging from an on-the-spot quiz to assess their knowledge of the company to deadline-driven tasks while spending a day on the job. But the candidates aren't the only ones in the hot seat. Adding to the pressure, a rival company is also present and waiting for an opportunity to swoop in and steal any of the contenders by making a competing offer. The participant must then decide immediately whether they will take the rival's offer or stay in the competition in the hope that they are the last one standing for this once-in-a-lifetime job opportunity. Produced by Sony Pictures Television and Embassy Row.
