"Secret Millionaire" on ABC is a dramatic reality series that takes America's wealthiest individuals away from their lavish lifestyles, sprawling mansions and private planes and places them undercover into some of the most impoverished neighborhoods in America. Shot under the guise of a documentary, "Secret Millionaire" reveals the dramatic personal return that millionaires will get when they leave their fortunes to invest in those less fortunate. Challenged with living on minimum wage, the millionaires immerse themselves in situations beyond their comprehension. They work side-by-side with community members and befriend those in need to decide who should ultimately receive their gifts of a lifetime.

On the series, the millionaires are touched by the people they meet. Some inspire with their dedication to helping others, while others relay stories of overcoming tremendous odds. On the final day, the Secret Millionaires meet with the chosen recipients and reveal their true identity and intention: to give them at least $100,000 oftentimes more of their own money and to change their lives forever.

The series engages viewers in important social issues, extols the virtues of volunteerism and changes the lives of disadvantaged people and the philanthropists who helped them in unexpected ways.

"Secret Millionaire" is produced by Zodiak USA. Chris Coelen, Greg Goldman, Bruce Toms serve as executive producers on "Secret Millionaire."
