The CW Upfronts 2018 are taking place on Thursday 17th, 2018 in New York. The fall schedule will be announced on that day. Carina Adly MacKenzie was travelling yesterday in order to get there. Perfect time for another Twitter Q&A!
She shared, that it took about a week to find Jeanine Mason, who plays Liz Ortecho in the re-imagining. She added “Nathan [Parsons] and I are super close in real life, so I didn’t have to find him, he was right here the whole time. :)”
The pilot was filmed in Albuquque and Santa Fe. When asked about, where the filming is going to take place the writer replied “Santa Fe”. While the press focused on the immigration topic, the short description of Carina Adly MacKenzie reveals something new.
The death of Arturo Ortecho’s daughter Rosa will play a part in the show. Read MacKenzie’s short and quick description of the show:
“A woman who returns to her hometown after a decade away, finds out her old high school is both a cop and an alien, and that her older sister’s accidental death wasn’t an accident.” The question is: Where aliens involved? Drugs? Or both?
She also answered questions about other projects. We listed the Roswell related and some random questions only. Please visit Carina Adly MacKenzie’s official Twitter page and scroll through her timeline for more.
Anybody up for a little Q&A sesh? I’m bored on an airplane.
