"CELEBRITY WIFE SWAP" TO PREMIERE ON TUESDAY, APRIL 15 AT 10:00 PM ON ABC

The Families of Daniel Baldwin and Jermaine Jackson Will be Featured in the Premiere Episode of "Celebrity Wife Swap"

Encores of "Resurrection" Will Air Tuesdays at 10:00 p.m. For The Next Two Weeks, on April 1st and 8th

"Celebrity Wife Swap" will make its season three debut on TUESDAY, APRIL 15 at 10:00 p.m. ET, on the ABC Television Network. In the premiere episode, two Hollywood dynasties come together for the first time when the partners of actor Daniel Baldwin and music legend Jermaine Jackson swap lives for one week.

Encores of "Resurrection" will air on Tuesdays at 10:00 p.m. for the next two weeks, on April 1 and 8, until "Celebrity Wife Swap" premieres in that timeslot on April 15.

In the season debut, actor Daniel Baldwin's former girlfriend, Isabella Hofmann, lives in the Hollywood Hills with their autistic son Atticus (17). After struggling for a decade with drug addiction, Daniel is now sober and working on rebuilding his relationship with both Isabella and Atticus. Meanwhile, in Calabasas, CA, music legend Jermaine Jackson and his wife, Halima, live a privileged life with their prized show dog, Fiji.

These families may be considered Hollywood royalty, but that is where their similarities end. At the Baldwin/Hofmann home, Isabella is solely responsible for the day-to-day running of her home, while Halima does not worry about cooking and cleaning and domestic responsibilities. When Isabella arrives at the Jackson home, she is blown away by the glitz and glamour as well as the racks and racks of clothing, endless pairs of shoes and infinite bottles of cologne. Meanwhile, Halima experiences a surprise of her own when she sees her swap home's modest size, compared to her own grand estate. Throughout the week, each of the women experience what it's like to live in each other's shoes: including managing hectic schedules, scrubbing their own pots and pans and even cleaning up after messy, indulgent dinners. When the time comes, the two women gladly welcome the rules change, but not everyone else is so willing. In the end, one side of the swap is left in an awkward and uncomfortable situation when the celebrity husband holds firm and resists any change.

"Celebrity Wife Swap" finds two women of celebrity families, each with opposing values, who trade households, lifestyles and children (but not bedrooms) in a week-long challenge. In the first part of the exchange, each woman moves into the other's home and agrees to follow a manual of "household rules" written by the departing woman including: how to parent, manage their social life, do house work, unwind and more. Everything changes in the second half of the week when the swap participants take charge and introduce their own set of new rules and run the "nest" their way.

At the end of the week, the two couples reunite and come together for the first time. In a raw, honest and highly-charged exchange of views, they make frank assessments of one another's lifestyle and discuss their experiences. Throughout the process they will discover what life would be like in the shoes of another celebrity family.

"Celebrity Wife Swap" is produced by Zodiak Los Angeles. Tony Yates and Bruce Toms serve as executive producers. It is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HD format, with 5.1-channel sound. A TV parental guideline will be assigned closer to airdate.
