In NATHAN FOR YOU, Fielder uses his real-life business degree from the University of Victoria to help struggling companies with out-of-box strategies and WTF marketing campaigns that other business consultants wouldn’t dare to attempt. Whether he's advising a clothing store to let people shoplift, or creating a world-wide sensation with a viral video of a pig rescuing a goat from drowning to boost attendance at a petting zoo, NATHAN FOR YOU goes as far as it takes to make these unconventional business ideas happen.

In the first episode (Sunday, Feb. 16 at 10 p.m. ET on Much), Fielder sets out to drum up attention for a yogurt shop owner by creating a new “poo” flavour that's sure to have everyone talking – or gagging. He also devises a scheme that allows a pizzeria to guarantee delivery in eight minutes or less. Finally, he field-tests his theory that confidence, not intelligence, is the key to success with an elaborate experiment involving a 7-year-old, a jerk, and a turtle.
