The coming-of-age drama centres around Carter (Prescott), a teenager who discovers that her mother abducted her as a child.

Bones writers Emily Silver and Terri Minsky have penned the script for the pilot.

Denisof will play Carter's birth father, who is described as a family mediator. He works as a novelist who found success with one novel titled 'Losing Lyndon' which was based around the disappearance of his daughter.

However, he now wonders whether to write a follow-up novel following the return of his daughter, titled 'Finding Carter'.

Alexis Denisof starred as Benedick in Joss Whedon's adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing in 2012.
