"'Joe Piscopo/Barry Williams" - Two of the most important women in the lives of two single dads -- comedian Joe Piscopo ("Saturday Night Live") and actor Barry Williams ("The Brady Bunch") -- swap lives for one week on "Celebrity Wife Swap," TUESDAY, JULY 8 (10:00- 11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
Joe Piscopo is a comedian best known for his legendary impersonations while a cast member of the long-running television series "Saturday Night Live." Joe resides right outside New York City with two of his children, Michael (11) and Olivia (9). Joe's personal assistant Jessica - also referred to as SSO (sometimes significant other) - is responsible for the running of Joe's household, including grocery shopping, cooking, returning messages and organizing Joe's schedule. Joe's two children rule the house with no chores or structure. When it comes to Joe's relationship with Jessica, there are definitely some blurred lines between personal and professional.
Barry Williams is a familiar face to generations of television viewers for playing the role of Greg Brady on the iconic television series, "The Brady Bunch." Today, Greg lives in Branson, MO where he performs in "The '70's Music Celebration." Barry has one son, Brandon (11), who lives part time with him. Barry's right-hand woman is Marie who oversees the running of Barry's stage performance each and every evening. From the wardrobe and props to music and choreography, Marie is on top of it all, but her job duties end there. Marie does not help Barry at home nor does she get involved in his personal life. Brandon is a big help at home and likes to help cook dinner and spend time with his dad at his show. Barry and Brandon are very patriotic and recite The Pledge of Allegiance prior to dinner.
When it's time for the swap, Jessica arrives in Branson and is surprised to see that she will be living in an apartment, unlike Joe's expansive home in New Jersey. Jessica is immediately thrown into Barry's show, but tensions flare when Jessica arrives 20 minutes late to rehearsal bringing Barry the wrong guitar stand for his evening performance. Clearly frustrated, Barry and Jessica get off on the wrong foot unsure how the swap is going to unfold.
