MTV’s new drama, “Finding Carter,” contains a bit more actual drama than its other scripted series. The show is about a teenage girl who realizes her close-knit family is a lie: The woman who raised her isn’t actually her mother.
When Carter (Kathryn Prescott, “Reign,” “Skins”) is arrested at a high school party, it’s not the arrest she needs to worry about — it’s the policewoman who tells her that she was kidnapped as a child. “When you were 3 years old, you were abducted. The woman you think is your mother is not your mother. Carter Stevens is not your real name,” she says.
Carter moves in with her new (old) family, but finds it hard to adjust to her new life. Watch the first trailer for the series below.
“Finding Carter” premieres Tuesday, July 8 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
