Actor Ted Danson has traded places with his wife MARY STEENBURGEN - while his show has been cancelled, hers has been picked up by the same TV network.

The plug was pulled on Danson's show BECKER last week (ends16MAY03) by CBS, who picked up Steenburgen's JOAN OF ARCADIA drama.

But all is not lost - the pair will be heading to Calgary, Canada, in June (03) to make the film SURVIVING LOVE, in they'll play a married couple who seem to have everything going for them to the outside world, but who are actually planning a divorce following their daughter's wedding.

However, a road trip they take together has unexpected and frightening results.
