For years the boss has tricked his staff into believing he is simply another co-worker. So when he needs a 'real' boss to help close the deal of a lifetime, he hires an actor to play the role. What could possibly go wrong?
New Perspectives' smash hit adaptation of Lars Von Trier's cult film is given a full digital makeover, in an outrageous comedy led by Josie Lawrence and Ross Armstrong, joined by a host of acclaimed actors and comedians.
The Boss of It All featured special guest appearances from:
Le Gateau Chocolat (Fri 18 Sept at 8pm)
Anavab Pal (Sat 19 Sept at 4pm)
