For the first time ever in the history of NBC’s "The Apprentice," viewers can get a sneak peek online at NBC.com and at Yahoo! (http://apprentice.yahoo.com) of the new season’s premiere episode before it is broadcast on NBC. The first twenty minutes of "The Apprentice: Los Angeles," which premieres Sunday, January 7 (9:30-11 p.m. ET), can now be seen on both NBC.com and Yahoo! The series will return to its regular timeslot of Sundays, 9-10 p.m. ET, on January 14.
Dramatic new twists and turns – and a cross-country move to Los Angeles – make NBC’s new season of "The Apprentice" more compelling than ever when 18 new candidates engage in the series’ fiercest competition yet. In a compelling social experiment of haves and have nots, candidates this season will have to earn the right to live like Trump. Each week, the winning team will get to live in a luxurious mansion. But the losers will have to sleep outside in the back yard of the mansion in tents with outdoor showers and port-a-potties, giving the "Apprentice" hopefuls more incentive than ever to win their tasks each week.
In another engaging new twist, the winning project manager will sit in the boardroom and help advise Mr. Trump on who he should fire each week from the opposing team, plus they will also remain project manager until their team loses. Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. will return for several episodes, along with previous "Apprentice" winners, as boardroom advisors to their father.
"The Apprentice: Los Angeles" is produced by Mark Burnett Productions in association with Trump Productions LLC. Mark Burnett, Donald J. Trump and Jay Bienstock are executive producers. Conrad Riggs, Page Feldman and James Canniffe are co-executive producers.
