The Business Inspector, which will air later this year, sees self-made haulage millionaire Hilary Devey advise struggling small British firms on how to turn around their fortunes.
"Britain's brimming with creativity but a terrifying number of businesses go bust each year and this shouldn't be happening," said Devey. "I am going to teach businesses how to improve their all-round business knowledge and direction, cash flow, marketing strategy and in some cases even their enthusiasm."
The four-part series is sponsored by HM Revenue & Customs.
The last series of The Hotel Inspector, fronted by Alex Polizzi, averaged an impressive 2.1 million viewers for Five.
