MTV's 'Finding Carter' is definitely no 'Awkward': See the trailer

Finding Carter


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.
