The Fox network will air a two-hour prime-time special later this month on the "Octomom," Nadya Suleman.

The documentary is scheduled for Aug. 19 and is called "Octomom: The Incredible Unseen Footage." It's billed as a look inside the life of the single mother of 14.

Fox calls it as a "fly on the wall" look at what it's like to take care of so many children. A California judge last month appointed a lawyer to oversee the estate of Suleman's octuplets to ensure they weren't exploited.

The production company bought the film from RadarOnline, which has had extensive access to the family. Fox says it and the production company, Pilgrim Films & Television, have set up a six-figure account for the children.
