Additional Families Currently Being Cast In Honolulu, Tampa, New Orleans, Minneapolis, Baltimore, Nashville & Orlando

For the first time on the series, two dads, Mr. Levine and Mr. Cooke, trade houses and spouses on back-to-back new episodes of TRADING SPOUSES: MEET YOUR NEW DADDY airing Tuesday, Aug. 31 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. As the two dads meet each other's families and instill their own set of rules, witness the mayhem that ensues. Then, find out how each of the dads distributes his new family's $50,000 prize.

The Cooke family has made its home far from the hustle and bustle of the city. On a small farm in Greenville, GA, the Cookes have adopted a simpler way of life. James "Jay" Cooke lives on the farm, where he also works as a lathe operator. He trades with Justin Levine, a New York lawyer by day and social chameleon by night who is an active member of the New York theater scene.

On Tuesday, Aug. 24 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), Tammy Nakamura and Al-Mela Biggins return for part two of the encore presentation of the premiere episode of TRADING SPOUSES: MEET YOUR NEW MOMMY on FOX.

The search has begun for more families to participate in TRADING SPOUSES: MEET YOUR NEW MOMMY. Families who are interested in an out-of-the-ordinary adventure and who have eclectic backgrounds and lifestyles are encouraged to participate.
