In the series premiere of FINDING CARTER (Tuesday, July 8 at 10 p.m. ET on MTV), Carter (Prescott) is arrested after the police bust an out-of-control high school party. While at the police station, a social worker reveals a shocking truth to Carter – that the life she has been living is a lie and that Lori (Govich), the woman Carter knows to be her mother is, in fact, her kidnapper. Carter is then forced to pack up the only life she’s known and reunite with her birth parents (Wathros and Denisof). However, Carter clashes with her new family and their uptight ways, only inspiring her to find and reconnect with Lori before the police find her and arrest her for kidnapping.
