Meet the Sparkses (from left to right): Nick, Renee and Brian, and the Wurgels: Bruno, Carmen and Rose. For six weeks, the Sparks family, who are African-American, and the Wurgel family, who are white, shared a home in L.A. for a new documentary series called Black. White.

Using cutting-edge Hollywood makeup techniques, the Sparks family became white and the Wurgel family became black. After several hours in the makeup chair each day, both families would go out into the world to see what life is like as the member of a different race. In their new skin, the Sparks and the Wurgels went undercover shopping, working and socializing with the opposite race.
