ÂPalmetto Pointe,Â 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.
ÂPalmetto Pointe,Â 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 ÂUSA HighÂ and as Zach Vernon on ÂPort Charles.Â
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 ÂOne Tree Hill.Â 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 ÂOne Tree HillÂ 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 ÂSame As It Never WasÂ that will have the up-and-coming actress playing the best friend of Lacey Chabert (ÂParty of Five,Â ÂMean GirlsÂ).
Gabrielle Carteris, who starred for five years in the role of ÂAndreaÂ in the Aaron Spelling series ÂBeverly Hills 90210,Â plunges into ÂPalmetto PointeÂ 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 ÂDawson's Creek,Â also joins the teen drama. Repeta has a long list of credits including the feature film ÂDivine Secrets of the Ya-ya SisterhoodÂ and TV's ÂMatlock.Â
ÂThis 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,Â said Executive Producer John Cleveland Kearns.
Casting Director David Schifter has referred to stars Timothy Woodward, Jr. and Brent Lovell as the ÂBen Affleck and Matt Damon of the Carolinas.Â
