Switched at Birth is the story of two girls who were accidentally switched at birth. According to IMDB, "Bay Kennish grew up in a wealthy family with two parents and two brothers, while Daphne Vasquez, who lost her hearing as a child due to a case of meningitis, grew up with a single mother in a poor neighborhood. Things come to a dramatic head when both families meet and struggle to learn how to live together for the sake of the girls. "
It is a very challenging role for Katie as she has to speak her lines with a deaf accent and use ASL to sign her lines as well. The drama is being assigned the high-profile time slot immediately after Secret Life of the American Teen!
"It's all because of IMTA. Katie has been able to launch her career because of IMTA."
Katie has shot several PSA's and interviews about bullying recently. Katie will be featured in an upcoming Seventeen magazine photo layout and interview and she has had interviews with Entertainment Tonight promoting Switched at Birth. The show and photos of the cast will also be featured on billboards, posters and buses.
