Here is Rchael Brosnahan's statement about the project from TheHollywoodReporter:
"I am thrilled to be partnering with Amblin to bring Beth O'Leary’s beautiful book to life. I was utterly charmed and deeply moved from the first page to the last and can't wait to share Leena and Eileen's story with everyone."

Here is the author/ executive producer's statement about the project:
"I couldn't be happier that The Switch has found a home with Amblin. I came away from my first call with Kristie, Jeb and the team absolutely buzzing — their vision for The Switch is just so exciting. I'm a huge fan of Rachel, too, so it's an absolute dream to have her both starring and exec producing. Basically, I'm still pinching myself.”
Here is goodreads synopsis of The Switch:
When overachiever Leena Cotton is ordered to take a two-month sabbatical after blowing a big presentation at work, she escapes to her grandmother Eileen's house for some overdue rest. Eileen is newly single and about to turn eighty. She'd like a second chance at love, but her tiny Yorkshire village doesn't offer many eligible gentlemen.
Once Leena learns of Eileen's romantic predicament, she proposes a solution: a two-month swap. Eileen can live in London and look for love. Meanwhile Leena will look after everything in rural Yorkshire. But with gossiping neighbours and difficult family dynamics to navigate up north, and trendy London flatmates and online dating to contend with in the city, stepping into one another's shoes proves more difficult than either of them expected.
Leena learns that a long-distance relationship isn't as romantic as she hoped it would be, and then there is the annoyingly perfect - and distractingly handsome - school teacher, who keeps showing up to outdo her efforts to impress the local villagers. Back in London, Eileen is a huge hit with her new neighbours, but is her perfect match nearer home than she first thought?
