*Oxygen’s new reality series “Like a Boss” follows the professional and private lives of executive assistants working for several big names, including the show’s executive producer Nick Cannon.
Cameras follow Cannon’s assistant Amber Grimes, as well as Devin Simpson, assistant to successful real estate agent Blair Myers; Rian Parish, assistant to popular radio personality Big Tigger; and Drekia Glenn assistant to music executive Abou “Bu” Thiam.
Each of these worker bees aspire to the baller status enjoyed by their employers, and viewers will see that they are not above paying whatever dues are necessary to get there – from washing cars to changing sheets, to doing homework, to administering spray tans.

Below, Cannon also speaks about the catch 22:
“Like a Boss” premieres Tuesday, March 29 at 9 p.m. on Oxygen.
