FAIRY TALE TURNS INTO REALITY ON "THE SWAN" ON ITS NEW SPECIAL PREVIEW DATE, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 7, AND TIME PERIOD PREMIERE MONDAY, APRIL 12 ON FOX
"FOREVER EDEN" MOVES TO THURSDAYS BEGINNING MARCH 25, ON FOX
THE SWAN, a new series where fairy tale turns into reality, previously announced to premiere on Monday, March 29, will now premiere Wednesday, April 7 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). Beginning Monday, April 12, THE SWAN will air in its regular time period (Mondays, 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), and FOREVER EDEN will move to Thursdays starting Thursday, March 25 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
THE SWAN offers women the incredible opportunity to undergo physical, mental and emotional transformations with the help of a team of experts. Contestants must go through an intensive "boot camp" of exercise, diet, therapy and inspiration to achieve their goals. Each week feathers will fly as the inevitable pecking order emerges. Those not up to the challenge are sent home. Those who are will go on to compete in a pageant and become "The Ultimate Swan."
Each contestant has been assigned a panel of specialists -- a coach, therapist, trainer, cosmetic surgeons and a dentist -- who together have designed the perfect individually tailored program for her. The contestants' work ethic, growth and achievement will be monitored. The final reveal at the end of each episode will be especially dramatic because it will be the first time that contestants will be permitted to see themselves in a mirror during the three-month transformation process. Two women will be featured every week and at the episode's conclusion, one will go home and one will be selected to move on to the 1st Annual Swan Pageant.
FOREVER EDEN seems like the idyllic lifestyle – a tropical paradise free from the stresses of everyday life. Eleven guests have vowed to take an indefinite break from civilization to live what they think will be the most blissful existence imaginable. Over the past few weeks, guests of Eden have enjoyed perpetual sunshine, the perfect tropical setting and never-ending comforts. But with the constant threat of banishment and surprises lurking around every corner, the guests are learning that things aren't always what they seem and every decision has a consequence … good or bad.
