ABC FAMILY'S AWARD-WINNING FAMILY DRAMAS, "SWITCHED AT BIRTH" AND "THE FOSTERS," RETURN WITH NEW EPISODES, MONDAY, JANUARY 13

Burbank, CA (November 25, 2013) - Monday nights are full of family drama on ABC Family with the premieres of "Switched at Birth" and "The Fosters" on Monday, January 13, 2014. ABC Family will air a special "Switched at Birth" marathon on Monday, January 13, 2014, from 12:00PM - 8:00PM ET/PT, leading up to the premiere. On Tuesday, December 31, 2013, a "The Fosters" catch-up marathon will air from 11:00AM - 6:00PM ET/PT.

The third season of ABC Family's Peabody Award-winning drama series, "Switched at Birth," begins Monday, January 13, 8:00PM - 9:00PM ET/PT. Senior year means big changes for Bay and Daphne, as the Carlton School for the Deaf receives an influx of hearing students who are not happy to be there. Daphne begins working at a free clinic as part of her probation from the Senator Coto blackmail scandal, and bonds with a pre-med student (guest star RJ Mitte, "Breaking Bad") with a spinal injury. Bay is inspired by her art teacher (guest star Sandra Bernhard, "Roseanne") and surprised by her jock classmate (guest star Max Adler, "Glee"), when she takes an art class at a local college. Toby tries to unite a divided Carlton by coaching girls' field hockey, and Kathryn dips her toes into new territory when she makes friends with a gregarious tap dancer (guest star Alec Mapa, "Ugly Betty").

"Drowning Girl" was written by Lizzy Weiss and directed by Jim Hayman.

"Switched at Birth" is executive-produced by Lizzy Weiss ("Blue Crush"), Paul Stupin ("Make It or Break It") and John Ziffren ("Melissa & Joey," "Make It or Break It").

Moffett ("Friday Night Lights") as John Kennish, Lea Thompson ("Back to the Future," "Caroline in the City") as Kathryn Kennish, Lucas Grabeel ("High School Musical") as Toby Kennish, Sean Berdy as Emmett Bledsoe, with guest star Marlee Matlin ("The West Wing").

"The Fosters" returns with all-new episodes on Monday, January 13, 9:00PM - 10:00PM ET/PT, picking up from the summer cliffhanger. The repercussions of Callie's decision to run away impact every member of the Foster family, including newlyweds Stef and Lena, who had offered to adopt the troubled teen. Both Jude and Brandon struggle with their own personal guilt about her running away. Mariana inadvertently discovers the whole story about Lexi's upcoming trip to Honduras.

"The Honeymoon" was written by Bradley Bredeweg & Peter Paige and directed by Jim Hayman.
