SECRET MILLIONAIRE, the dramatic new unscripted series that takes America's wealthiest individuals away from their lavish lifestyles, sprawling mansions and private planes and places them undercover into some of the most impoverished neighborhoods in America, will have its special two-hour series premiere Wednesday, Dec. 3 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
Based on the RDF UK format and the Channel 4 hit "The Secret Millionaire," the inspirational series reveals the dramatic personal return that the participating millionaires receive when they leave their fortunes to invest in those less fortunate. The series will air in its regular time periods Wednesdays and Thursdays (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) beginning Thursday, Dec. 4 on FOX.
During each episode, SECRET MILLIONAIRE will focus on a different millionaire who goes undercover not only to experience real life in America's poorest neighborhoods, but also to uncover everyday heroes. Challenged with living on welfare wages, the millionaires will immerse themselves in situations beyond their comprehension. They will work side-by-side with community members and befriend those in need to decide who should ultimately receive their extraordinary gifts of a lifetime.
The millionaires will be touched by the people they meet. Some will inspire with their dedication to helping others, while others will relay stories of overcoming tremendous odds. On the final day, the Secret Millionaires meet with the chosen recipients and reveal their true identity and intention: to give them at least $100,000 of their own money and to change their lives forever.
From RDF USA, SECRET MILLIONAIRE is executive-produced by Chris Coelen, Greg Goldman and Bruce Toms.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
