Freeform's 'Switched At Birth' Could've Been Set In Texas!

Freeform's 'Switched At Birth' Could've Been Set In Texas!

Switched At Birth could’ve actually been a totally different show.

With just hours before the series finale, we’re just finding out (after stalking creator Lizzy Weiss‘ Twitter) that the first draft of the Freeform show was definitely not like we know it.

Bay Kennish and Daphne Vasquez would’ve been the same, but everything else was diff!

“In my first draft, Emmett was the adopted son of two deaf dads, the Kennishes had an 11 year old son named Luke & the show was set in Austin,” Lizzy admitted.

So why was it changed? This is why:

“Changed b/c we had trouble casting Luke; the network was superstitious about anything set in Texas; & I met Marlee [Matlin] so I gave E a mom instead.”

A case of the ‘what could have been’s…

Switched At Birth airs TONIGHT @ 9PM ET/PT on Freeform.
