About the show:
Switched at Birth" 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 neighborhood. Despite overwhelming socio-economic and ethnic differences, both families must learn to co-exist as parents and blend their lives into one for the sake of their daughters.
The third season of ABC Family's Peabody Award-winning drama series airs Mondays, 8:00PM – 9:00PM ET/PT. Senior year means big changes for Bay and Daphne, as they make decisions about their future and deal with consequences of decisions already made. Daphne's work at the free clinic has inspired her to consider pre-med, but when a life-altering event takes place, she begins a spiral of self-destructive behavior that will risk everything she's worked for. Reconciled with Emmett, Bay debates attending art school and discovers a cousin she never knew she had. Kathryn deals with the reality of being a herotica novelist, Regina is torn between the pull of her old neighborhood and her new life, and the girls need to summon courage to face a moment of truth they never anticipated.
"Switched at Birth" has been honored with a Peabody Award as well as a Television Critics Association Award for Outstanding Achievement in Youth Programming and an Imagen Award for Best Primetime Program. The series has also won AFTRA's (American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) American Scene "Crystal Award®," the Producers Guild of America George Sunga Award and a Gracie Award.
