The Swap [Disney Channel]

A premiere date has been set for the next “Disney Channel Original Movie.”

Disney Channel confirms that its “The Swap” will premiere at 8PM ET on Friday, October 7. Peyton List and Jacob Bertrand star.

Not simply content to reveal the premiere date, Disney Channel also shared a detailed synopsis, official cast list and set of three production photos:

Ellie O’Brien (List) is trying to juggle rhythmic gymnastics and troubles with her best friend. Meanwhile, classmate Jack Malloy (Bertrand) is struggling to live up to his brothers’ hockey-star legacies and his dad’s high expectations and tough-love approach. When a text argument about whose life is easier gets out of hand, Ellie and Jack trigger an unexplainable real-life swap. As each tries to navigate the other’s life, hilarity ensues when Ellie (as Jack) learns about brotherly bonding and hockey lingo, while Jack (as Ellie) has to decipher girl code and experiences a spa day. With a rhythmic gymnastics championship and a spot on the varsity hockey team on the line, they must figure out how to get back in their own bodies before the swap becomes permanent. As they are forced to literally walk in each other’s shoes, they gain empathy for one another and learn valuable lessons about their own lives.
