Producers and the ABC television network are looking for an Atlanta family to be a part of an upcoming reality television show in which the mothers of two families will trade places.
"The Swap" will follow family members as they cope with an outsider for 10 days as the relatives, and viewers, discover that what is considered conventional in one family can be considered unorthodox and completely bizarre in another.
During the first five days the Moms try to fit into the routine and adopt the lifestyle of their new family, giving all a chance to become familiar with each other. For the second five days the new Moms make any changes they see fit and run the home in a way that suits them.
“The Swap” will document all the details: how couples share (or don’t share) housework and child-rearing responsibilities, how they spend their money, how they spend their leisure time. At the end of each show, the families get a chance to take a step back and look at their own family dynamics from a slight distance –often gaining new and fascinating insights in the process.
