MTV Orders Family Drama Series From ‘Lizzie McGuire’ Creator

MTV has handed a 12-episode series order “Finding Carter,” a family drama from executive producer Terri Minsky.

Based on a script penned by Emily Silver (“Bones”), “Finding Carter” centers on Carter, a teenager who seems to have the perfect life with Lori, her fun-loving single mom. When the police bust a high school party, Carter learns Lori abducted her as a toddler, and that she must return to the family who thought they had lost her.

Kathryn Prescott will topline the series as Carter Stevens, while Milena Govich will play Lori. Other cast members include Cynthia Watros, Alexis Denisof, Anna Jacoby-Heron and Zac Pullam.

Scott Speer directed the pilot for “Finding Carter,” which was greenlit last September. “Finding Carter” marks the first drama series pickup for MTV this year.
