New to the Show? **Pilot Premiere- Feb.17,2014**

An upcoming pilot set to air this mid-season 2014 reminds us of where we began 12 years ago- Roswell. :lol

Show Description-

When Emery was 6 years old, an alien spacecraft crash-landed in her small town. Whether they came in peace or with more sinister intentions didn’t matter: a fierce battle erupted as humans fought for control over their new rivals, an alien species called the Atrians. In the midst of the conflict, Roman, a 6-year-old Atrian boy, found his way to a shed behind Emery’s house, where she protected him from harm, bringing him food, comfort – and friendship. In their brief time together, Emery and Roman forged a deep bond, but the authorities wasted no time tracking Roman down and capturing him in a violent confrontation. Emery has grown up believing that Roman was killed that day. Ten years later, the Atrians have been acclimated to life on Earth, but they are interned in a heavily-guarded camp known as the Sector to keep them separate from humans. Now, for the first time, a group of Atrian teens will enroll in a suburban human high school, with the goal of testing the feasibility of human/alien integration. The eyes of the nation and the whole world are fixed on this historical social experiment, an endeavor fraught with suspicion and fear. In the mayhem of the first day, Emery is amazed to learn that Roman was not killed by the authorities and is, in fact, one of the Atrian students. Their childhood bond is quickly rekindled – in a school and a society that distrusts everything about the Atrians, Emery and Roman have found each other again. However, their relationship is threatened by the small-mindedness of their respective communities and the political agendas of people in power. While the world around them rages with anger and prejudice, their bond becomes increasingly strong and increasingly dangerous. As an epic Romeo and Juliet romance unfolds, a violent encounter between Roman’s father and Emery’s father occurs in the Sector. Can Roman and Emery’s love – and peace between the species – survive?

The series stars Aimee Teegarden (“Friday Night Lights”) as Emery, Matt Lanter (“90210”) as Roman, Grey Damon (“The Secret Circle”) as Grayson, Natalie Hall (“Pretty Little Liars”) as Taylor, Malese Jow (“The Vampire Diaries,” “Big Time Rush”) as Julia, Titus Makin, Jr. (“Glee”) as Lukas, Chelsea Gilligan (“How I Met Your Mother”) as Teri and Greg Finley (“The Secret Life of the American Teenager”) as Drake.

The CW Network has won the rights to ‘Oxygen,’ a sci-fi alien drama in the vein of ‘District 9,’.
The project originated with Space Floor TV’s Andre Nemec, Scott Rosenberg and Josh Applebaum, the group responsible for ‘Happy Town,’ ‘Life on Mars’ and ‘Samurai Girl.’ The project, written by Meredith Averill (‘The Good Wife’), follows a high school program that represents the first attempt to integrate a group of humanoid aliens who have been stranded on Earth. Much like how ‘District 9′ drew heavily from the socio-political sphere of South Africa post-apartheid, ‘Oxygen’s concept already draws allegorical parallels to America’s civil rights movement. The high school program is challenged by prejudices on both sides, with the requisite star-crossed romance between a human girl and an alien boy. -TVRage

I have just seen the trailer for this. It is very much looking like Roswell. Seeing who Max and Liz are in it already. Going to have to keep an eye out for it starting now :)

I can't imagine it will be that bad but won't match up to Roswell for me. Although it will probably be a lot more full on
