TELL ME A STORY, created and executive-produced by Kevin Williamson, is now in its second season on CBS All-Access, with new episodes dropping every Thursday night (Season 1 is available to stream in its entirety on the service).

In The CW’s ROSWELL NEW MEXICO, now in its first season on Tuesday nights, a trio of alien siblings struggle with passing as human in the town of the famed crash site.

Like the WB’s ROSWELL before it, The CW/UPN’s new Tuesday night series ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO is based on the ROSWELL HIGH novels by Melinda Metz. Unlike the earlier ROSWELL series, ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO returns its heroine, Liz Ortecho (played by Jeanine Mason), to being a Latina, while making the main characters adults rather than adolescents. The core of the story is still the same. Three extraterrestrial siblings, Max (Nathan Dean Parsons), Isobel (Lily Cowles), and Michael (Michael Vlamis), actually landed in the famous Roswell crash. Awakened decades later, they’ve been able to pose as human and join the community. However, […]Read On »

The CW’s new series ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO is based on the ROSWELL HIGH series of novels by Melinda Metz. The 1999-2002 WB/UPN series ROSWELL was also based on Metz’s books, but everyone involved says that ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO, while it shares the basic premise and some character names, differs substantially from the earlier television version. While ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO still revolves around a trio of extraterrestrial siblings who came to Earth in the famous, mystery-shrouded crash, and are now hiding in plain sight as humans, these characters and their human friends and enemies are all adults. There are some other […]Read On »
