Stacey Dooley is taking her hit documentary series ‘Stacey Dooley Sleeps Over’ to the US.
The former ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ star launched her popular ‘Sleeps Over’ show back in 2019 and has filmed three seasons for the W channel.
In every episode, she spends 72 hours as a house guest with an unusual family – and she is now taking the format across the pond in a new series called ‘Stacey Dooley Sleeps Over USA’.
UKTV’s head of factual and factual entertainment Hilary Rosen, who commissioned the American version, said: “This series has gone from strength to strength and taking it abroad is an exciting departure.
“Heading to the USA will deliver fresh encounters for Stacey, and a compelling new series of this much loved brand for the W audience.”
Adam Collings, channel director for W, added: “I’m delighted we’re sleeping over once again in this brilliant new series with Stacey and can’t wait to watch her inimitable approach, which is further from home than usual.
“It’s also been great seeing the new free to air audience finding and loving the series, so we excited to bring the next instalment later this year.”
Stacey’s previous shows have included sleepovers with a couple who have an open marriage, a Mormon family and “landed gentry”.
Series two of ‘Stacey Dooley Sleeps Over’ featured a family of Orthodox Jews, “Eco Warriors” and an episode which focused on ‘Living With Down Syndrome’.
Filming on the American series is due to start in the summer and its scheduled to air later this year.
A statement from UKTV, the company behind the W channel, added: “(Stacey will be) meeting a variety of extraordinary families in the USA and will be lifting the lid on more fascinating and unusual lifestyles.
“Further information on the families and locations that Stacey is visiting will be revealed in the coming months, with filming due to start in the summer.”
Stacey Dooley Sleeps Over USA will air on W later this year. All episodes from previous series are available on UKTV Play.
