The hot new teen drama will feature familiar faces from 'DawsonÂ?s Creek,' 'One Tree Hill,' and 'Beverly Hills 90210'

“Palmetto Pointe,” one of the most talked about teen dramas to hit primetime television this fall season, comes alive in a TV clip posted at http://www.mayocommunications.com/.

The 80-second trailer brings an action-packed intense game of baseball, beach parties and real life experiences.

“Palmetto Pointe,” which began filming last month in Charleston, South Carolina, debuts Sunday, Aug. 28th, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on i (http://www.ionline.tv), formerly PAX TV. The high-energy drama follows six high schoolers now heading off to college and facing issues like teen pregnancy and date rape.

The trailer includes scenes with Josh Holland. Holland, the New York City native teen heartthrob who was raised in California, became a household name to millions of fans worldwide as Jackson Green on the hit show “USA High” and as Zach Vernon on “Port Charles.”

In "Palmetto Pointe" Holland plays Jason Sutton, the hot-headed older brother of Tristan Sutton, played by Timothy Woodward, Jr., the show's lead and producer. Holland's character runs the local Palmetto Pointe hotspot for music and fun, the City Bar & Grill, the main hangout for the show's central characters. While Jason (Holland) has a big heart, he also has issues with the way Tristan runs his life and isn't afraid to let his brother know what he thinks.

The clip also features John Wesley Shipp, who won two consecutive daytime Emmy awards for his soap work for "As the World Turns" and "Santa Barbara." Shipp earned his first daytime drama role playing Dr. Kelly Nelson on "The Guiding Light" in 1980. His character on "Dawson's Creek" (1998), Mitch Leery, was killed off in the fifth season.

"It is amazing how regardless of what new actor or actress comes onboard, the chemistry of the cast remains untorn. It is like we were all best friends growing up," said Brent Lovell, who wears two hats as executive producer and co-star, as the character Logan Jones.

"The character of Logan Jones will be one that magnetizes every audience member, simply because of his charismatic and warm-hearted aura," he said. "I am really looking forward to having the audience see what Logan goes through pertaining to his home life. Child abuse is an issue that is rarely tackled on national television; however, it is something that influences nearly two million children in the U.S. annually."

The TV clip also features two other familiar faces in popular teen dramas.

Sarah Edwards, who joined the cast this week, is known to millions of fans worldwide as Theresa on “One Tree Hill.” She attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City after her first season and has now returned to South Carolina to begin filming the hot new teen drama.

Amanda Baker, also from WB's “One Tree Hill” is featured in the clip as well. Baker, who joins the cast as the sporty and ambitious Callah O'Connell, is fresh off a role on an ABC Family movie titled “Same As It Never Was” that will have the up-and-coming actress playing the best friend of Lacey Chabert (“Party of Five,” “Mean Girls”).

Gabrielle Carteris, who starred for five years in the role of “Andrea” in the Aaron Spelling series “Beverly Hills 90210,” plunges into “Palmetto Pointe” playing the loving, hardworking mother and loyal supportive wife in the drama.

Nina Repeta, who is best known for the role of Bessie Potter on “Dawson's Creek,” also joins the teen drama. Repeta has a long list of credits including the feature film “Divine Secrets of the Ya-ya Sisterhood” and TV's “Matlock.”

“This raw clip of Palmetto Pointe will give anyone goose bumps, because it has a dynamite cast and tight line of talent from other hit shows,” said Executive Producer John Cleveland Kearns.

Casting Director David Schifter has referred to stars Timothy Woodward, Jr. and Brent Lovell as the “Ben Affleck and Matt Damon of the Carolinas.”
