Alexis Carra is on the road to recovery…
The Spanish, Cuban and Argentinian-American actress has been cast in the ABC Family drama pilot Recovery Road.
Based on Blake Nelson’s novel about a teenage girl dealing with addiction, the project centers on party girl high school student Maddie Graham (portrayed by Samantha Logan) who spends her nights at a rehab facility.
Carra, who most recently starred on ABC’s sitcom Mixology, will portray Cynthia McDermott, the high school guidance counselor who discovers Maddie’s problem and sends her to rehab. For obvious reasons, she and Maddie have a contentious relationship.
Sebastian De Souza, best known for his roles in the UK’s Skins and Showtime’s The Borgias, will play the mysterious, bad-boy type Wes Stewart, another patient in rehab to whom Maddie is immediately attracted.
The script for Recovery Road was written by Bert V. Royal and Karen DiConcetto.
