CBS play the name game with unscripted pilot

Banana fana fo fana, fe fi fo fana …

CBS has ordered a pilot for a reality show revolving around celebs who switch places with everyday people who share the same first and last name.
“The Same Name” comes from the Endemol-controlled production shingle 51 Minds. It’s exec produced by Cris Abrego and Eugene Young.
Show will follow both the celeb and the non-pro as they spend time walking in each other’s shoes, with an emphasis on light-hearted humor and heart as the celebs are reminded of how the other half lives.
The episodes are designed to be self-contained, in the vein of CBS’ unscripted hit “Undercover Boss.”
