On location multi-camera kit?

I'm bidding an on location production of a 1/2 local TV show. Yes, 'local' being the key budget word. The plan is to shoot on location five shows in one day - at a home, business, or storefront like a kitchen or coffee house. 3 cameras fixed positions, talking head, live-to-tape.
Any suggestions for a simple multi-camera switcher system? We may just record the live segments and assemble the features in post. Ideally, it would be great to have a finished show minus mastering on site. But yeah, I understand the repercussions of the gear to pull that off. We'd need live graphics overlay (moving and static with alpha) Probably could squeeze by with only one source deck.

I stil llike the good ole Grass Vallet 100. Componant, all the inputs and MEs ya need. More than enough for what ya wanna do. On a budget. Live switching to a recorder is yer buddy. Record the isos if you need handles on cutaways later on. IN the end, any componant switcher will do just fine.
