Rosewell is a reboot of the original 90's television series. Julie Plec, creator of The Vampire Diaries, will be directing the pilot. It will be produced by Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank, Lawrence Bender, and Kevin Kelly Brown.
After reluctantly returning to her tourist-trap hometown of Roswell, New Mexico, the daughter of undocumented immigrants discovers a shocking truth about her teenage crush who is now a police officer: He’s an alien who has kept his unearthly abilities hidden his entire life. She protects his secret as the two reconnect and begin to investigate his origins, but when a violent attack and long-standing government cover-up point to a greater alien presence on Earth, the politics of fear and hatred threaten to expose him and destroy their deepening romance.
