FOX has ordered a second season of TRADING SPOUSES: MEET YOUR NEW MOMMY. In season two of the unscripted series, more moms and dads will try out the ultimate life change, leaving their own family to take over – for one week – a family much different from their own. While some parents are welcomed with open arms, others face mutiny from their new household. For all involved it’s the ultimate chance to find out if the grass actually is greener on the other side.
Families participating in the show will again receive a $50,000 prize but, unbeknownst to the participants, how the cash is spent will be up to the surrogate parent. The twist is one of many in the unscripted FOX series that ups the ante on the classic fish-out-of-water story.
TRADING SPOUSES: MEET YOUR NEW MOMMY is from Rocket Science Laboratories, the producers of “My Big Fat Obnoxious FiancÃƒ” and “Joe Millionaire.” Jean-Michel Michenaud and Chris Cowan serve as executive producers. Jeff Cvengros is co-executive producer. Charles Duncombe serves as executive in charge of production.
