Award-winning documentary maker, Stacey Dooley MBE and UKTV's free-to-air channel W will return to explore more fascinating and unusual lifestyles of families overseas in a second series of Stacey Dooley Sleeps Over USA (3x60’).

The brand-new series will continue to cover themes of modern relationships and family life – exploring attitudes to love, relationships, marriage, parenting and money. Further information on the families and locations that Stacey is visiting will be revealed in the coming months.

In the upcoming second series, Stacey travels to Nevada, the only US state where brothels are legal, to find out if places like The Mustang Ranch should exist as a solution to the dangers sex workers face.

In the second episode, Stacey Dooley finds out if three parents are better than two as she stays over at the home of a progressive, modern family in Florida made up of two mums, one dad and their three joint kids.

In the final episode, The Mormon with Two Wives: Stacey Dooley stays with a family of polygamist Mormons, who live off-grid in the Black Hills of South Dakota and discovers that father Jeff is on the hunt for a third wife.

The first series of Stacey Dooley Sleeps Over USA saw Stacey stay with Autumn - a 9-year-old GunTuber who lives with her parents in Oklahoma, Mya and Kennedy – a transgender mum and dad living in Virginia, and Cheryl and Quran – a couple from Georgia with a 37 year age gap. All three episodes and previous series are available on UKTV Play.

UKTV's Emile Nawagamuwa said: “It’s fantastic to see Stacey head back to the US for more sleepovers. Now more than ever families are playing by their own rules and seeing the US, so familiar yet so different, through Stacey’s eyes is an incredibly compelling proposition.”

UKTV's Adam Collings said: “Stacey’s wit, warmth and ability to have insightful conversations with individuals has made this show a big favourite with the W audience. The series offers a unique opportunity to get an indepth look at different types of family life and I’m thrilled that we’ve been able to extend it further.”

Stacey Sleeps Over USA airs this Spring on W and UKTV Play.
