Finding Carter has stumbled upon some good news — a green light at MTV.
The cabler handed a 12-episode series order to the coming of age drama from executive producer Terri Minsky (Sex and the City) and based on an original script by Emily Silver (Bones).
Finding Carter centers on a teenager named Carter (Skins‘ Kathryn Prescott) who seemingly has the perfect life with fun-loving single mom Lori (Law & Order‘s Milena Govich), until the police bust a high school party and she discovers Lori abducted her as a toddler. Now Carter must return to the family who thought they had lost her. As she navigates brand new parents (Angel‘s Alexis Denisof and Lost‘s Cynthia Watros), a twin sister (newcomer Anna Jacoby-Heron) high school and boys, she vows to find Lori before the only mom she’s ever known is gone forever.
