A member of the Minutemen group and a family of illegal immigrants in Los Angeles are being paired in a reality series aimed at giving people a chance to see life from a different perspective.

The episode of the FX series "30 Days," from Academy Award-nominated "Super Size Me" documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock, is scheduled to air Aug. 2.

In it, a man identified as Frank and said to be a member of the Minutemen Civil Defense Corps, the anti-illegal immigration group, lives in a one-bedroom apartment with a family that has emigrated from Mexico illegally.

The network remained within the law, said John Landgraf, president of FX Networks.

"We suggested the family seek outside legal counsel," Landgraf told the Daily Journal of Los Angeles. Participants were not paid and the family's real surname was not used, he said.
