Freak Friday: A Character Swap
1976 & 2003's Freaky Friday is a movie where a mother and daughter swap bodies, live each other's lives and learn valuable lessons. 2011's The Change-Up is similar movie where two male friends swap bodies and fuck each other's wives, zero lessons learned. 2018's Freak Friday is a character show where bodies are not swapped, but fictional characters from one script are swapped into another. Think, Debbie Downer replacing Samantha Jones in Sex & the City, or Mrs. Doubtfire for Olivia Benson in Law & Order SVU, or that giant fish from the Shape of Water is now JK Simmon's in Whiplash. That is what this show is, a big old freaky character swap!
