MARCUS SAMUELSSON
Friday at 8/7c on CBS


FOR THE FIRST TIME, CELEBRITIES GO UNDERCOVER ON TWO SPECIAL EDITIONS OF “UNDERCOVER BOSS”

The Two New “Celebrity Undercover Boss” Episodes Will Feature Grammy Award-Winning Musician Darius Rucker on May 12 and World Famous Chef and Restaurateur Marcus Samuelsson on May 19

For the first time, two celebrities will embark on undercover journeys as they search for undiscovered talent in their own fields, on two special episodes of UNDERCOVER BOSS. “Celebrity Undercover Boss” will feature Grammy Award-winning musician Darius Rucker on Friday, May 12, and chef and restaurateur Marcus Samuelsson on Friday, May 19. For the first time on the series, state-of-the-art prosthetic makeup was used to disguise Rucker and Samuelsson so they would not be recognized, despite their fame.

“Celebrity Undercover Boss: Marcus Samuelsson” – Internationally acclaimed chef and restaurateur Marcus Samuelsson goes undercover to find and mentor new culinary talent. During his mission, he discovers some gifted aspiring chefs at a public cooking class, a culinary institute, a high-end food truck, and a soup kitchen, on UNDERCOVER BOSS, Friday, May 19 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Marcus Samuelsson is an internationally acclaimed chef who has thrilled the food scene with a blend of culture and artistic excellence and was inducted into the James Beard Foundation “Who’s Who of Food and Beverage” in America in 2016. Samuelsson caught the attention of the culinary world during his tenure as executive chef at New York’s Aquavit, where he received an impressive three-star rating from The New York Times, the youngest person ever to receive such an accolade. Samuelsson is the author of several cookbooks, including the James Beard Award-winning The Soul of a New Cuisine, Marcus Off Duty: The Recipes I Cook at Home and The Red Rooster Cookbook. Additionally, Marcus has released the young adult book Make It Messy, and his memoir, the New York Times bestseller and James Beard-winning Yes, Chef. Samuelsson was the winner on both season two of “Top Chef Masters” and the second season of “Chopped All-Stars,” and he serves as a recurring judge on “Chopped.” He was also a mentor on “The Taste” and is the founder of the acclaimed website www.foodrepublic.com. His iconic restaurant, Red Rooster Harlem, has earned countless accolades for its food, style and connection to the community. In addition to opening Red Rooster’s downstairs supper club, Ginny’s, Samuelsson is opening a Red Rooster in London. His other restaurants include Streetbird Rotisserie in Harlem; American Table Cafe and Bar in New York; American Bar and Brasserie in Stockholm, Sweden; his signature restaurant Marcus’ in Bermuda; Marcus at National Harbor outside of Washington, D.C.; Norda Grill in Gothenburg, Sweden; and Kitchen and Table in both Norway and Sweden.
