First Look: Finding Carter

I'm not the biggest watcher of MTV shows, with the exception of the odd episode of Teen Wolf or even Catfish from time to time but having looked at the trailer of upcoming series, Finding Carter, I might be tempted to give the station a little more attention. Might being the operative word there.

Finding Carter is an upcoming 12 episode US TV series, created by Emily Silver and starring Kathyrn Prescott, best known for her role as Emily Fitch on Skins. The series has the British actress playing the title role of Carter Stevens - a young girl leading a pretty ideal life until one day she learns that she was abducted when she was three years old and that her mother, Lori (Milena Govich) is actually her kidnapper.

With this particular revelation now known - Carter's birth parents, Elizabeth (Cynthia Watros - Lost) and David Wilson (Alexis Denisof - Angel) are reunited with their lost child as are Carter's previously unknown siblings, Taylor (Anna Jacoby-Heron) and Grant (Zac Pullam) and Meredith Baxter as Grandma Joan.

I've checked both the official trailer and the concept one and while the latter certainly sold the show a lot better, it does look fairly interesting as a series. Prescott's American accent might need some work and there are certainly moments that are a bit too cheesy for my liking but if this show ever gets a UK broadcaster, I might give it a go.

Season 1 Trailers:

Finding Carter will air Tuesdays at 10pm on MTV from July 8th for US viewers.
