MTV has ordered 12 episodes of their drama, Finding Carter. Finding Carter centers on a teenager girl Carter (Kathryn Prescott) who appears to have the perfect life with her fun-loving single mom Lori (Milena Govich). Everything appears to be perfect until Carter discovers Lori had abducted her as a toddler. With Lori on the lamb, Carter is sent to live with her biological parents who she has never met. Her biological family thought they had lost her forever and her brand new parents (Cynthia Watros, Alexis Denisof), and twin sister (Anna Jacoby-Heron), are all ready to welcome her home. As Carter learns to deal with high school, her new family and boys, she vows to find Lori before the only mom she’s ever known is gone forever. Finding Carter is expected to air sometime in 2014.


I must say I am really looking forward to this series. It's different and based on an interesting premise. What do you think? Will you be watching Finding Carter on MTV?
