DESCRIPTION: (from CMT's press release, October 2018) "Wife Swap," the greatest and most successful televised social experiment of our time, will join the Thursday night lineup in February. The beloved series is back at just the right time, as the country feels more divided than ever. Each episode of the CMT revival of the ABC hit docuseries (2004-2010) will feature two families from different walks of life who switch spouses and slowly learn to embrace their differences in order to come together. The one-hour, 10-episode series spotlights families from different geographical and social backgrounds that swap spouses; showcasing hot-button issues like politics, classism, gender and race with the end goal of finding common ground. During each switch, the new spouses must at first adhere to exactly the same rules and lifestyle of the spouses being replaced, only to later establish their own rules. At the end, the two couples meet for the first time, where they discuss what they learned from the swap and what changes and new rules will remain once they return home. "Wife Swap," a Banijay Group format, is produced by Banijay Studios North America with David Goldberg, Caroline Baumgard, Ted Iredell, Perry Dance, and John Platt as executive producers. "Wife Swap" premieres on Thursday, February 28 at 9 pm ET/PT.
