    Recession Reality Show to Air on Fox

    Getting laid-off just got even worse - it could happen on-camera.

    The recession is about to hit the airwaves.

    A recession-themed reality show - where contestants can vote on who gets fired, who gets a raise and who gets demoted - is set to air on one of the Fox Television networks, Reuters reported Tuesday.

    "Someone's Gotta Go" will be produced by Dutch-based production company Endemol, the TV giant behind reality hits like "Big Brother." It will center around a struggling business hit hard by recession woes.

    Employees at the business will decide in each episode what their colleagues deserve, whether it's more cash or a kick out the door.

    "It will be an interesting experiment to reverse the power roles," an Endemol spokesman said.

    No premiere date for the show has been set. Endemol hopes to sell the show to markets throughout the U.S., the production company said.
