TCA: MTV’s ‘Finding Carter’ Is “A Women’s Story”, Say Producers
July 13, 2014 - Finding Carter
MTV’s new strange family play Finding Carter centers on a teen (Kathryn Prescott) who learns a lady who she suspicion was her mom indeed abducted her as a toddler and contingency adjust to life with her biological family while looking for her on-the-lam “mom” (whew).
One questioner currently during TCA forked out an surprising occurrence for a TV press tour: The 8-person row of actors and executive producers enclosed usually one man. (The lineup: actors Prescott, Anna Jacoby-Heron, Milena Govich, Cynthia Watros, lone-guy Alexis Denisof and EPs Terri Minsky, Deb Spera and Maria Grasso.)
Coincidence? The producers don’t consider so. Spera remarkable “our DP is a woman” and that everybody is really responsive of a fact that 3 women are during a helm of what is radically a women’s story. “I don’t consider of it as deliberately: ‘Oooh, we have to have women,’ it’s usually that women accepted a tension of a show,” pronounced Minsky. “I hired people who accepted a show.” She remarkable that many elements of a uncover grew out of her attribute with her possess daughter.
Prescott agreed. “In so most TV we see women who are delegate characters … they are usually there be means of their propinquity to a masculine lead,” she said. “What’s good about this is it’s about Carter, her dual mothers, her attribute with them.” Her impression will have relations with boys, though “it’s not like a executive story line. It’s really secondary.”
