The Shop

UK: CHANNEL 4 - 3X60’

Employees of a struggling company stage a corporate mutiny to save their jobs.

In this documentary series, Hilary Devey, the straight-talker from dragons’ den, finds local businesses whose profits have dangerously tailed off and boots out the management for three weeks, letting the day-to-day staff run the show. With their livelihoods at stake, how will the employees cope with the pressures of managing everything from budgets to clashing personalities? When the bosses return will this be a story of triumph, or is this business headed straight for bankruptcy?
