Celebrity life swap coming to CBS

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Celebrities are swapping lives with Average Joes in a reality pilot ordered by CBS.

“The Same Name” plays like a real-life Prince and the Pauper, where a celebrity switches lives with an everyday person who happens to share their same name.

For example, a plumber named John Goodman could trade places with the actor John Goodman, who would live the life of a plumber and perform his job during the stunt.

The fish-out-of-water, self-contained format has elements of CBS’ hit “Undercover Boss” as well as the network’s two successful “I Get That a Lot” specials.
