This is the form letter that City TV sends to people asking about Roswell in Canada. Thanks to ~*Louise*~, tinyman, and Ronda for sending this in. Ronda says that “Space” will be airing first season reruns.
Citytv will broadcast “Roswell”, a suspenseful and touching one-hour drama that blends science-fiction with the alienation of young adulthood, Mondays at 8:00pm, beginning in October, 2000. Citytv is thrilled to have “Roswell” on its fall schedule to please the many fans who are devoted to this award-nominated program. “Roswell” came into its own creatively, and ratings-wise, in its last few episodes of Season One, and earned its way into the hearts of its devoted fan base. It is a significant prime-time addition for Citytv.
Roswell has become a symbol of government conspiracy and deception regarding ‘extraterrestrial visitations’ for the community of UFO believers. Many believe that the Air Force worked with the FBI to squash a rogue element within the military that wanted to reveal the truth about Alien visitors. Over the years, there have been numerous accounts of mysterious activity in the area around Roswell. Now, there is a television show that explores the same mystery.
In its sophomore year, “Roswell”, based on the series of books Roswell High by Melinda Metz, is set in the tiny, but notorious southwestern town of Roswell, New Mexico. Two teenagers — Liz Parker (Shiri Appleby) and Max Evans (Jason Behr) — forge an out-of-this-world connection when he saves her life. Liz discovers that Max, his sister Isabel Evans (Katherine Heigl) and his friend Michael Guerin (Brendan Fehr) are surviving descendants from beings on board the fiery crash of an alien spacecraft that legend says plummeted to the ground in 1947. Since emerging from incubation, the three teenagers have grown up quietly among the Roswell residents, experiencing
first hand all the emotions that come with life on Earth and the struggles of adolescence.
Liz was forever changed in the instant Max brought her back to life and the intimacy between the two of them is thrilling. The extraterrestrial trio of Max, Isabel and Michael learn to trust Liz in order to stay one step ahead of local officials and the FBI, who are hot on their trail.
Don’t miss Season Two of “Roswell”, coming to Citytv in October, 2000.
