Deadline is reporting that Karan Oberoi is the latest name to join the cast of the upcoming CW reboot pilot of Roswell.
The pilot will have us following Liz Ortecho, the daughter of undocumented immigrants who reluctantly returns to her tourist-trap hometown of Roswell, New Mexico. There she 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.
Karan Oberoi (whose credits include Notorious and the Training Day television series) will be playing the role of Noah Bracken, Isobel’s sexy, charming and devoted husband who senses a secret in his wife that’s starting to tear them apart. Carina Adly MacKenzie will be writing the script, as well as executive producing alongside Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank of Amblin Television, as well as Lawrence bender and Kevin Kelly Brown.
