Plot Synopsis

UNDERCOVER CHEF is one-hour hidden-camera series where executive chef and restaurateur Mark Estee helps some of America's most desperate and dysfunctional restaurants by going undercover, exposing their dark secrets, then showing them how to create amazing new food and institute best practices. Estee hides 20 cameras throughout each location, assumes a false identity, and infiltrates the restaurants to learn how the staffers operate when they don't know they are being watched. The series tells transformational food stories, shows shocking moments in restaurants and changes lives. These are stories about people who followed their dreams, opened restaurants and have fallen on hard times.

In the series opener, "Getting Naughty at NautiFish," Mark knows that when a restaurant is in decline, there is often more to the issue than meets the eye. Mark heads to the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri to meet with Rob Shields, the owner of NautiFish, a lakeside restaurant that is struggling to stay afloat. Mark sets up hidden cameras throughout the restaurant and goes undercover to reveal the shockingly naughty truth behind this restaurant's failure to thrive.
