Kerr Smith, one of the stars of The CW’s new show Life Unexpected, is taking us behind the scenes to the set of the show.
Life Unexpected will make its debut on Monday, Jan. 18 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW. Smith plays radio deejay Ryan Thomas, who is main character Cate’s (Shiri Appleby) on-air co-host as well as her boyfriend. You might recognize Smith from Eli Stone or Dawson Creek.
Smith does a good job with his behind-the-scenes look at the actors on set, including Britt Robertson, who plays 16-year-old Lux, Appleby and Kristopher Polaha, who plays Cate’s high school love interest Baze and the biological father of Lux. In fact, this clip gives us an upcoming spoiler – Ryan is going to punch Baze! It also shows us that filming a TV show is “real work” to actors and the crew. And a Monday to them is just as bad as a Monday to us at our jobs. I found that interesting.
In case you haven’t seen any of the clips to Life Unexpected, this short little clip pretty much tells the story:
Hope you tune in Monday. I’m planning a live blog right here at New to TV.
