The 26-year-old actress stars in the series as 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 (Haley Ramm) and her grandmother. Just as things start to look up at work, home and on the romance front with co-worker Dominic (Richard Brancatisano), April gets the devastating news from an estranged uncle (Steven Weber) that she has cancer.
“Surrounded with people so talented it makes me wonder how the hell I got my job. I am so grateful for the cast of @chasinglifeabcf,” Italia captioned on Instagram over the weekend.
