The CW's 'Star-Crossed' Trailer Explores Intolerance ... and Human/Alien Romance (Video)

The Wrap

Can a human girl and an alien boy find love in a world running rampant with prejudice?

That appears to be the central question to "Star-Crossed," the upcoming drama from The CW, judging from a preview that hit the internet with megawatt force.

The series, slated for a midseason premiere, stars "Friday Night Lights" alum Aimee Teegarden as Emery, a gal who falls for Roman ("90210" star Matt Lanter), a nice boy she goes to school with. Which is sweet and everything, except for the fact that Roman belongs to an alien race called Atrians, who have a less-than-friendly relationship with humans in general. So clearly, the show title was meant to work on a number of levels. Sigh; can't we all just get along?
