The CW plans to introduce five new dramas for the 2013-14 TV season. On Thursday, the network released the first extended preview of “Star-Crossed.”
Aimee Teegarden (“Friday Night Lights”) stars in the series as Emery. When Emery was six, an alien spacecraft crash-landed in her town. The humans immediately panicked and started to round up the aliens, who were called Atrians.
Emery discovered an alien boy named Roman (“90210’s” Matt Lanter) hiding in her shed and befriended him. But it wasn’t long before the authorities found him and took him away, letting Emery believe that he had been killed.
“Star-Crossed” flashes to 10 years later when a decision has been made to allow seven of the Atrian teenagers to attend high school with humans. It’s an experiment and the entire world is watching to see how it plays out.
But neither the humans nor the Atrians are having an easy time accepting one another. Bigotry and fear seem to trump common sense as fights break out between the two species.
Check out the video below to see what happens when Emery and Roman are reunited as teenagers while chaos seems to follow them and their families and friends. Will you be tuning in to see how the drama plays out?
“Star-Crossed” is slated to air midseason on The CW.
