Shout to my dudes Charles Swift (audio mixer) and John Mokhtarei (key p.a.) for their work on “Undercover Boss” and their Chicago Cubs and Ricketts family episode, airing tonight on CBS! The show, a hit with critics and viewers, places executives into the blue collar jobs within their respective corporations and gives them the opportunity to see first hand the hard work and dedication of employees lower on the corporate food chain.
The Wrigley Field episode with Todd Ricketts was shot this summer. “It’s a really great piece of Chicago filmmaking and storytelling,” says Swift. “Lots of great Chicagoans, great stories. [Todd] Ricketts was really great, getting into the hot dog vendor job. It gave him a chance to see more of Chicago and the Cubs organization.
Tune in tonight on CBS after “Amazing Race,” and catch more on “Undercover Boss” at cbs.com.
