MTV's 'Finding Carter': Watch the trailer

Posted on

Finding Carter
MTV

MTV is taking its high school programming to more dramatic heights with its newest series, Finding Carter. Unlike the network’s other teen shows — including the sci-fi spookfest Teen Wolf and the raunchy comedy Awkward — this one is a hard and true family drama. And a tearjerker, at that.

The series stars Kathryn Prescott as Carter Stevens, a teenager who gets involved in a tiny legal snafu and subsequently finds out that her ‘mother’ abducted her as a child. Her real parents are the Wilsons (Lost‘s Cynthia Watros and Angel’s Alexis Denisof). The show follows Carter (real name: Linden) as she struggles to reconnect with her biological family while also reconciling her idea of the woman who raised her.

Watch the trailer for the network’s drama — which premieres July 8 at 10 p.m. ET on MTV — below:
