Teenaged soap-opera actor Darnell Williams is the focus of attention in this ABC Afterschool Special -- not surprisingly, since Williams plays a dual role. Young Johnnie Grant, a video-arcade whiz, is surprised to discover that he is the exact double of a famous teen movie star. At the behest of the celebrity, the two boys trade identities, promising to go back to "themselves" after an hour. But since this is a variation on The Prince and the Pauper, the switch goes on much longer than expected with hilarious results.
