Congrats, Italia Ricci!
The 26-year-old actress’ pilot just got picked up by ABC Family!
Chasing Life (a title which the fans picked out), is based on the Mexican telenovela Terminales and follows twenty-something April (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.
