Ready for more exciting news? ABC Family has added another new one-hour drama series Chasing Life (formerly Terminales) to its roster of original programming. The series is scheduled to start production in July and will premiere on ABC Family in early 2014!
Chasing Life follows twenty-something April (Italia Ricci), a smart and quick witted aspiring journalist, who is trying to work her way up the ladder at a Boston newspaper by trying to impress her hard-nosed editor. When not pursuing the latest scoop, April tries to balance her ambitious career with her family – her widowed mom Sara, rebellious little sister Brenna and her grandmother. Just as things start to look up at work, home and on the romance front with co-worker Dominic, April gets the devastating news from an estranged uncle that she has cancer. Chasing Life is adapted from the successful Televisa Spanish-language Mexican television series and is a co-production of BV Family Productions, Lionsgate, and Televisa in association with ABC Family.
The series stars Italia Ricci (Unnatural History), Mary Page Keller (NYPD Blue), Aisha Dee (I Hate My Teenage Daughter), Richard Brancatisano (The Elephant Princess) and Haley Ramm (Red State). Chasing Life is written by Susanna Fogel and Joni Lefkowitz. Aaron Kaplan (GCB, The Neighbors, Terra Nova), Fogel and Lefkowitz will serve as executive producers.
