DNA Info: VH1 To Air ‘Swab Stories’


NEW YORK, NY (April 7, 2015) – VH1’s new reality series  “Swab Stories”  debuts Wednesday,  April 29th  at  9:00 PM ET/PT  and seeks to answer the most fundamental question an individual can ask: ‘Who am I?’ This is where  Jared Rosenthal  and his assistant, medical technician  Ana Lopez, step in – he owns and operates the ‘Who’s Your Daddy’ DNA testing truck. When the clinic on wheels hits the streets, people often gawk, laugh, snap photos, and have even been known to jump out of their cars at traffic lights. The truck sparks reactions wherever it goes, from Manhattan to the Bronx – plus on road trips to New Jersey, Maryland, DC, Chicago, and beyond.
When clients climb aboard, they are often seeking answers to  burning questions they have kept buried deep inside of them – sometimes for decades. They reveal the doubts that keep them awake at night, and ask for Jared’s help in putting an end to their most personal mysteries.  From astonishing stories like “I think I was kidnapped at birth and have found my mother” and “I think the man I’m dating might be my brother,” to personal revelations such as “I may have found my sperm donor father,” to touching stories like “I think I have a twin sister” there are no limits to the variety of questions people have about their DNA – right in the middle of traffic.
Jared and  Ana, known as the “Swabinator,” collect their clients’ specimens and return to deliver life-changing news – and unlock deeply held family secrets – in a frank, respectful, and compassionate manner, every single day. Come along for the ride when  “Swab Stories” premieres on VH1 April 29th, 2015 at 9:00 PM ET/PT.
