THE WORLD’S RICHEST GIVE TO THE POOREST IN NEW TRAVEL SERIES
Most travel program show us two things: destinations and people touring those destinations. Once shot, edited, and packaged, most series often come off looking like a promotional campaign for certain locales. But, the Nat Geo People Channel has a new travel show that is quite a deviation.
The cable network recently announced a series that’s more philanthropic in nature. “Undercover Angel” was first revealed in Realscreen. You’ll see some of the world’s richest people lend their business skills to some of the poorest communities in the world. They’ll travel to Bulgaria, Cambodia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Uganda and the UK to work with residents to find long-term answers to the biggest problems facing their communities. At the end of each episode, the tycoons will expose their real identities. It’s reminiscent of CBS’ Undercover Boss, but with a global twist.
In a statement to Realscreen, the show’s executive producer, Dan Barraclough, said:
“The world’s rich are looking for new ways to help those less fortunate than themselves, by getting involved and building their own organizations to create effective change on the ground. Undercover Angel really taps into this new spirit of philanthropy.”
Look for the 10-part series to air on the cable network in 47 countries and in 12 languages later in the year.
