MTV is adding to its lineup of scripted dramas. EW.com’s Inside TV reports that the cable channel has picked up the unconventional family drama series "Finding Carter."
Based on a script by "Bones" writer Emily Silver, the show comes from executive producer Terri Minsky of "Sex and the City."
"The first drama series MTV has announced this year, ‘Finding Carter’ is a coming-of-age story about a teenager named Carter (Kathryn Prescott) who seemingly has the perfect life with fun-loving single mom Lori (Milena Govich), until the police bust a high school party and it’s discovered that Lori abducted Carter as a toddler," the story reports. "Now, Carter must return to the family who thought they had lost her. As she navigates brand-new parents, a twin sister, high school, and boys, she vows to find Lori before the only mom she’s ever known is gone forever."
