LIVE TWITTER CHATS WITH LUCAS GRABEEL AND LIZZY WEISS OF "SWITCHED AT BIRTH" AND JAKE T. AUSTIN OF "THE FOSTERS" TO TAKE PLACE DURING ALL-NEW EPISODES OF ABC FAMILY'S MONDAY NIGHT DRAMAS, MONDAY, JUNE 10

Twitter Chats to Take Place Live During the East Coast Feeds Starting at 8:00 p.m. ET / 5:00 p.m. PT

Burbank, CA (June 7, 2013) - "Switched at Birth" star Lucas Grabeel and Executive Producer Lizzy Weiss, and Jake T. Austin of "The Fosters" will participate in live chats via Twitter during the East Coast feeds of their series' all-new episodes airing on Monday, June 10th, on ABC Family.

Actor Lucas Grabeel and Executive Producer Lizzy Weiss will chat live during the East Coast feed of the summer premiere of "Switched at Birth," airing on Monday, June 10th, 8:00 - 9:00 p.m. ET / 5:00 - 6:00 p.m. PT. Fans should tweet to Lucas at @MrGrabeel and Lizzy at @LizzyWeissSAB to ask their questions and should include the hashtag #SwitchedAtBirthChat in their tweets. In the season premiere of "Switched at Birth," while Regina has been away at rehab, Daphne has grown closer to the Kennish family, spending her days at their country club and spending her nights in their guest room. This new family dynamic does not sit well with Regina, who unexpectedly returns home early in hopes of spending more time with Daphne. Bay begrudgingly starts working at her dad's office and, when her car breaks down near a local carnival, runs into her ex-boyfriend Ty, who has returned from serving in Afghanistan. Meanwhile, Travis talks Emmett into bringing some girls over to the house while Melody is out of town. And Kathryn's elaborate ideas for Toby and Nikki's rehearsal dinner rubs Nikki the wrong way.

Actor Jake T. Austin will participate in a live Twitter chat during the East Coast feed of "The Fosters" airing on Monday, June 10th, 9:00 - 10:00 p.m. ET / 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. PT. Fans are invited to ask Jake their questions about the series and can tweet to Jake's Twitter handle @JakeTAustin. They should include the hashtag #TheFostersChat in their tweets. Jake is also known to fans for his role as Max Russo on Disney Channel's "Wizards of Waverly Place." In "The Fosters," Jake plays Jesus Foster, the fraternal twin brother of Mariana (Cierra Ramirez). Jesus is a charming, hyperkinetic kid who is protective of his sister and his adoptive family. In the episode titled "Consequently," Jesus stops taking his medication to cover for Mariana and gets into a fight at school.
