300.cbs.logo.200.jpgLOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - CBS has just ordered a new reality pilot in which celebrities will be swapping lives with a lucky Average Joe who shares their namesake. The Same Name will play out like a rags-to-riches story. Theoretically a hairdresser named Julia Roberts could trade places with the actress Julia Roberts, who would live her life as a hairdresser and perform this job during the episode.

The new series contains similar elements of CBS' hit Undercover Boss as well as the network's two successful I Get That a Lot specials. Cris Abrego, and Eugene Young, will executive produce the series from production company 51 Minds.
