Black. White.

From Executive Producer Ice Cube Comes The Ultimate Reality Show,
An Explosive And Intriguing Series
Debuting On DVD September 12th From Fox Home Entertainment

CENTURY CITY, Calif. - From Emmy-winning producer R. J. Cutler* ("The War Room") and hip hop legend Ice Cube ( Boyz N The Hood ) comes "Black. White.," the provocative and insightful six-episode docudrama that redefined reality television. Arriving on DVD September 12 from Fox Home Entertainment, this groundbreaking series set the nation abuzz when two families - through the use of extensive makeup - trade races for six weeks. While three members of the Caucasian Wurgel family appeared black and three members of the African-American Sparks family appeared white, the ensuing sociological (and cosmetological) experiment was anything but black-and-white: finally answering the question, "What is it like to live in someone else's skin?" Ranking as the highest-rated unscripted series to ever premier on cable, this critically acclaimed show arrives on DVD laden with extras, including Ice Cube's "Black. White." music video, a behind-the-scenes featurette on "Black. White." makeup application, audio commentary by producers and cast, an educational DVD-ROM study guide created by University of California Santa Barbara race relations expert Dr. Howard Winant and much more. The two-disc set will be available to own for $26.98 US/$37.98 Canada.

Find out by watching this fascinating series in which the African-American Sparks family (Brian, Renee and 16-year-old Nick) trades places with the Caucasian Wurgel family (Bruno, Carmen and 17-year-old Rose) thanks to an incredible visual transformation created by Hollywood make-up artists.
