Undercover Billionaire

Genre: Reality

Undercover Billionaire

Glenn Stearns is a self-made billionaire. He grew up poor in the remote outposts of Maryland and was just 14 years old when he became a father.

A few years ago, he sold his company for $2.2-billion and he believes if he can do it, anyone can.

Now, he's putting his belief to the test in a series that taps into his expertise to see if it's possible to create a million-dollar company in just 90 days, as he partners with a deserving candidate.

But, there's a twist: the real identity of the mogul will remain anonymous to everyone around him. He'll be dropped off in a remote community with little resources and no contacts.

The road to success is rarely an easy one – he will need to build connections, relationships and get a job that pays cash to build a company from scratch.

If he's successful, at the end of the 90 days, he'll turn over the company he built to the people who helped him out along the way – and he'll reveal his identity to those around him.
