ONE YOUNG WOMAN'S JOURNEY BEGINS IN THE SERIES PREMIERE OF "CHASING LIFE," AIRING TUESDAY, JUNE 10TH AT 9:00 PM ET/PT ON ABC FAMILY

Burbank, CA (May 5, 2014) - One twenty-something's life is about to change forever in the new ABC Family original series "Chasing Life," premiering Tuesday, June 10th (9:00 - 10:00 PM ET/PT).

April (Italia Ricci) is a smart, charismatic and quick witted twenty-something 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). 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 (Steven Weber), 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. Along the way, she'll find new reserves of strength and passion within and discover that facing death may really be the only way to truly live.

"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 ("X-Men: The Last Stand"). Steven Weber ("Wings") and Rebecca Schull ("Wings") guest stars. Patrick Sean Smith ("Greek"), Susanna Fogel ("Life Partners"), Joni Lefkowitz ("Life Partners") and Aaron Kaplan ("Friends with Better Lives," "The Neighbors," "Terra Nova") serve as executive producers.
