Eddie Walker (Foy) and Tommy Finch (Victor Maddern) were World War II veterans and old friends who decided to have their daughters live in each other's households for a year because Eddie's daughter Patty (Lynn Loring) wanted to study at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London. While Patty lived in London with Tommy, his wife Sybil (Diana Chesney) and their son, Neville (Dennis Waterman), their daughter, Heather (Judy Carne) lived with Eddie and Dorothy Walker and their son, also named Tommy (Flip Mark).
The show focuses on the difficulties that Heather and Patty experience as they live in each other's families.
Fair Exchange replaced Rod Serling's The Twilight Zone on CBS's fall schedule in 1962. The series was the first hour-long sitcom since the Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour, but it was dropped. After mail protested CBS's decision, the network revived Fair Exchange in a half-hour format, but again the series failed in the ratings and was finally cancelled.
The Twilight Zone would replace Fair Exchange mid-season, albeit in an hour-long format.
