Season 1

Swingtown is an American television drama series created by Mike Kelley and produced by CBS Paramount Network Television which is a period and relationship drama about the impact of sexual and social liberation in 1970s American suburban households, with story arcs involving open marriages and key parties.

Swingtown originally aired in South Africa on DStv's M-Net Series channel from 27 August to 19 November, 2008, on Wednesdays at 22h00. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Swingtown premiered on SABC3 on Tuesday 26 January 2010, at 22h15. New episodes air from Tuesdays to Thursdays at the same time.

Synopsis

Swingtown is a drama series that peeks into the shag-carpeted suburban homes of the 1970s to find couples revelling in the sexual and social revolution that introduced open marriages, women's liberation and challenged conventional wisdom.

During this era of provocative change, Susan and Bruce Miller move their family into an affluent Chicago suburb in search of a different sense of community.

They’re after a taste of true suburbia - barbecues and get-togethers with their new neighbours, as well as a change of pace for their teenage daughter and pre-teen son.

Enter Tom and Trina Decker, a striking, outgoing couple who redefine the term "neighbourhood watch." After a mind-blowing evening with them, Susan and Bruce realize that couples in this town share much more than recipes, local gossip and a view of Lake Michigan and are worlds apart from their former conservative neighbours, Janet and Roger Thompson.

Susan's loyal friend Janet is appalled by what she witnesses in the new neighbourhood, while Roger, though dutiful to his wife, may be more intrigued than she knows.

Initially stunned themselves, the Millers are tempted by the possibility that this alternative lifestyle might add the zing they've been looking for in their own marriage.

In a shifting social climate - defined by its music, fashion and style - everyone in Swingtown is confronted with personal choices, experimentation and varying attitudes.
