THE MATAS AND MELANSONS FACE A DIFFICULT DECISION WHEN THEY SEE SIMILARITIES WITHIN EACH OTHER'S FAMILIES AND MUST DECIDE TO INVEST IN THEIR OWN CHILDREN AND HOMES OR SHARE WITH THE OTHER FAMILY, ON "THE BRIEFCASE," WEDNESDAY, JUNE 17

"Matas/Melansons"- The Matas from Boyle Heights, Calif. and The Melansons from Huningham, Mass. face a difficult decision when they see similarities within each other's families and must decide whether to invest the money in their own children and homes or share with the other family, on THE BRIEFCASE, Wednesday, June 17 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Meet The Mata Family

Richard: High School Teacher

Esperanza: Special Ed Teacher

Two children, ages 19 and 16

Boyle Heights, Calif.

The Matas are extremely passionate about their Mexican heritage, and they all perform together in a Mariachi band on the weekends. In addition to playing, they run a Mariachi conservatory to teach youth the art in hopes of keeping them off the streets of Los Angeles. Their value of education has driven them into large debt with student loans, and as teachers they often find themselves spending their own money on supplies.

Meet The Melanson Family

Mark: Firefighter

Cara: Stay-at-Home Mom

Four children, ages 14, 11, 9 and 7

Hingham, Mass.

Living on one income with four children is a challenge financially for Mark and Cara, but over the past six years, they've managed to foster multiple children. Their eldest son started the charity "Guys Making Pies" that has raised more than $30,000, and Cara is going back to school to become a lawyer so she can help advocate for foster children.

THE BRIEFCASE is produced by 25/7 Productions and distributed by Sony Pictures Television. Dave Broome (Creator and Executive Producer, THE BIGGEST LOSER)
and Faye Stapleton are executive producers.

THE MOYAS AND THE VENDELY-SALGADOS FACE THE DECISION OF PLANNING FOR THEIR OWN FAMILY'S FUTURE OR SHARING THE MONEY, EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE VERY DIFFERENT VIEWS AND LIFESTYLES, ON "THE BRIEFCASE," FRIDAY, JUNE 19

"Moyas/Vendely-Salgados"- The Moyas and the Vendely-Salgados face the decision of planning for their own family's future or sharing the money, even though they have very different views and lifestyles, on THE BRIEFCASE, Friday, June 19 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Meet The Moya Family

Gabe: Insurance Agent

Krystal: Stay At Home Mom

Six children, ages 9, 7, 5, 3 and 2-year-old twins

Albuquerque, N.M.

Gabe and Krystal Moya are high school sweethearts whose lives revolve around faith and family. The Moya's finances hit rock bottom in 2009, but through all the hard times, they remain positive, feel blessed, and are determined to raise their children with strong faith.

Meet The Vendely-Salgado Family

Amari Vendely: Unemployed

Natalie Salgado: Medical Assistant

Three children, ages 7, 5 and 3

Miami, Fla.

Amari and Natalie's financial situation hit a rough patch when Natalie was laid off from her position as a medical assistant. She has since found another job, but the time unemployed in between jobs took a toll on the family. In addition there will be extra expenses for Amari's transition. He was born female, but after giving birth to two children and living as a woman for most of her adult life, he now lives as a man.

THE BRIEFCASE is produced by 25/7 Productions and distributed by Sony Pictures Television. Dave Broome (Creator and Executive Producer, THE BIGGEST LOSER)
and Faye Stapleton are executive producers.
