The good news is, Friday Night Lights' Aimee Teegarden found her next series. The bad news is, we have to wait until midseason to see it. The above clip gives us a glimpse of Teegarden in Star-Crossed, though the focus is on the arrival of a group of aliens who are now being integrated into a public school for the first time since their arrival on the planet a decade ago. Teegarden plays the female lead, a human, while Matt Lanter plays Roman, the Atrian teen who sets his eye her.
There's actually more to the story than meets the eye in the clip above. If you noticed a bit of recognition between Roman and Emery (Teegarden), it's because these two have met before, years ago. Read the CW's full description for the series below.
Star-Crossed is described as an epic Romeo and Juliet romance, and it's not difficult to see why. He's an alien. She's a human. They're both really good-looking but it's unlikely that anyone wants to see these two kids get together. Well, any of the characters. Something tells me The CW's audience will feel differently. There's certainly potential for a story like this, and it's one of a couple indications that The CW is veering toward sci-fi. Well, young-adult-romance-sci-fi, anyway. But it's a start.
