Executives at TV3 have today announced the return of the revamped show, The Apprentice. The latest UK version has been on the air for the last number of weeks and is going down very well in Britain and here in Ireland.
Audience figures have been very strong in Ireland, prompting the producers to seriously think about bringing the show back. But, with Bill Cullen back on Moore Street selling penny apples, it was unclear about how the show would be return to Irish screens.
The show will be coming back on TV3 in September, but with some significant changes to the overall package. Producers have decided to change the name of the show, to something that would be more familiar with companies and ambitious job seekers here in Ireland.
The new show will now be called The Intern.
It will see many extremely talented individuals, battle it out for a 6 month work placement in a large, multinational tech company. Unpaid of course, but with the benefit of giving the candidates great experience and insight into how people with jobs actually live.
There will be no communal house this time, or Renault cars to taxi candidates to the various tasks – for obvious reasons. Those who make it onto the show will have to make their own way to and from tasks using public transport and lifts from their mothers when needed.
TV3 will be opening applications for the The Intern in the next few weeks and the show will be a major part of the station’s autumn schedule.
Mr Cullen has already submitted his application to be a candidate in this years show.
