ABC Family has picked up a second season of its original drama Chasing Life.
The series follows twenty-something April (Italia Ricci), a smart, charismatic and quick-witted aspiring journalist. When not pursuing the latest scoop, April tries to balance her ambitious career with her family, which includes her widowed mom Sara (Mary Page Keller), rebellious little sister Brenna (Haley Ramm) and her grandmother (Rebecca Schull). In an unexpected twist of fate, April lands in the hospital where her estranged uncle George works as an oncologist, and she learns the devastating news that she has cancer.
It is adapted from the successful Televisa Spanish-language Mexican television series Terminales and is a co-production of BV Family Productions, Lionsgate, and Televisa in association with ABC Family.
The series is executive produced by Sean Smith, Susanna Fogel, Joni Lefkowitz, and Aaron Kaplan.
Meanwhile, season two has also been picked up by ABC Spark in Canada.
