Switched at Birth, a one-hour scripted drama, tells the story of two teenage girls who discover they were accidentally switched as newborns in the hospital.
Bay Kennish grew up in a wealthy family with two parents and a brother, while Daphne Vasquez, who lost her hearing at an early age due to a case of meningitis, grew up with a single mother in a working-class neighbourhood.
Things come to a dramatic head when both families meet and struggle to learn how to live together for the sake of the girls.
Switched at Birth stars newcomer Katie Leclerc as Daphne Vasquez; Vanessa Marano as Bay Kennish; Constance Marie as Regina Vasquez; D.W. Moffett as John Kennish; Lea Thompson as Kathryn Kennish; Lucas Grabeel as Toby Kennish and Sean Berdy as Emmett Bledsoe.
Lizzy Weiss, Paul Stupin and John Ziffren serve as executive producers.
