CBS will air “Same Name,” a new unscripted reality series about famous people trading places with regular people who just happen to share the same name. The series debuts this summer.

After meeting, the two then swap lives for a week, trading houses, family, friends and co-workers in order to experience how their counterpart lives.  
In the pilot, former “Baywatch” star David Hasselhoff travels to Lake Jackson, Texas, where he trades lives with a 27-year-old blue collar worker who is also named David Hasselhoff.

“They may have the same names but their lives couldn’t be more different,” said CBS’ Jennifer Bresnan in a press release. “Walking in each other’s shoes and experiencing their home life, work and other activities reveals moments of humor, laughter and unexpected emotion.”           

Cris Abrego and Eugene Young are executive producing the show.
