From ABC – “Secret Millionaire” follows a few of America’s most successful business people as they spend a week in the country’s poorest areas and ultimately gift deserving members of the community with hundreds of thousands of dollars of their own money. Originally based on the hit UK series of the same name, each episode follows one of America’s most successful business people for one week as they leave behind their lavish lifestyles, sprawling mansions and luxury jets, conceal their true identities, and go to live and volunteer in some of the most impoverished and dangerous neighborhoods in the country. Surviving on welfare wages, their mission is to discover the most deserving individuals who continually sacrifice everything to help those in need, and ultimately encourage others to do the same. Throughout this incredible, life-changing experience, the Secret Millionaires will attempt to remain undiscovered, coming face to face with extraordinary people battling the odds every day of their lives. On the final day, in an emotional and dramatic climax, they reveal their true identities. Ultimately, the millionaires will each give away a great deal of their own money, changing lives forever and encouraging others to keep giving back. “Secret Millionaire” is executive-produced by Claire O’Donohoe, Grant Mansfield, Natalka Znak and Leslie Garvin. Paul Osborne is co-executive producer. The series is a Zodiak USA Production.
Scott sent out this email earlier to the industry:
After nearly a year of silence, we are so happy to finally reveal our secret! Without divulging too much, we can tell you how proud we were to be a part of such an amazing adventure.
“This was the most life changing experience I have ever personally encountered, and the best part was that I was able to share it with my youngest daughter, Alexa. I hope the viewers will be as inspired and moved as we were. By the end of the week, Alexa and I were emotionally drained, and yet so exhilarated.
The simple truth is, there’s joy and happiness in helping others.”
