Secret Interview sees two job candidates put trough a grueling interview they will never forget. The original 4x60mins show is for Channel 5 in the UK.

Richard Foster, managing director, GroupM Entertainment, said: “This structure with Twofour, built from our UK production relationship, plays to the strengths of both companies with the aim of making the most attractive proposition to broadcasters globally.”
