ABC Family announced filming is now underway on the new series Chasing Life, and the network also announced the addition of two recurring guest stars: Steven Weber and Scott Michael Foster. The one-hour dramatic series was adapted from the Mexican TV series and will be executive produced by Sean Smith, Susanna Fogel, Joni Lefkowitz and Aaron Kaplan.
Italia Ricci tackles the lead role of an aspiring journalist whose life is thrown for a loop when she finds out she has cancer. The cast also includes Mary Page Keller, Aisha Dee, Richard Brancatisano, and Haley Ramm.
The series will debut in 2014. Episode one is being directed by Steve Miner.
Chasing Life follows twenty-something April, 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.
