BLACK. WHITE. The Complete Series Debuts On DVD Today With Tons Of Extras

BLACK. WHITE. The Complete Series -- From Executive Producer Ice Cube Comes The Ultimate Reality Show, An Explosive And Intriguing Series Debuting On DVD Today From Fox Home Entertainment

From Emmy(R)-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 today 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.
