The UK Premiere of Chasing Life – a gripping drama series about an ambitious young journalist April (Italia Ricci) that takes a dark turn when she learns that she has cancer – is coming to Sony Channel from Tuesday, 17th October at 9:00pm.
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).
We meet April at a pivotal moment in her life: she’s landed a fantastic opportunity to impress her hard-nosed Boston newspaper editor and an office romance with her super-sexy co-worker Dominic (Richard Brancatisano) is just beginning to blossom.
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.
The series follows April through her journey in the face of this daunting revelation, during a time in her life when the challenges of finding love and success would be enough to keep any girl occupied. But April is determined to fight and refuses to give up her dreams and goals.
Sony Channel is available on Sky 157, Virgin 193, BT 331, TalkTalk 331
