U.S. net FYI has set an early July premiere for its experimental marriage series, The Seven Year Switch.

The 8 x 60-minute Kinetic Content-produced series documents the two-week journey of four couples participating in experimental “switch therapy” to determine whether they have chosen the correct life partner. Relationship experts will be on hand to help guide the couples through the adjustments of living with a “new” spouse.

Slated for a July 7 two-hour premiere at 9 p.m., the series opener will introduce the four couples to viewers and expose the stories of each relationship’s beginnings, how their marriages began to sour and why they’re willing to risk everything to save them. At the end of the month-long experiment, each couple is to reunite and decide whether to stay together and renew their vows or part ways and divorce.

The Seven Year Switch is exec produced by Christopher Coelen, Karrie Wolfe and Cat Rodriguez for Kinetic Content, while Gena McCarthy and Liz Fine serve as executive produce for FYI.
