Getting a Glimpse: Life Sentence


By: Jaclyn Cascio (@jaclynator)

What do you do when your bucket list is full of check marks and you’ve got a lifetime ahead of you left to live? A new show coming to The CW will explore exactly that. Keep reading and get a glimpse of the upcoming dramedy Life Sentence!

Life Sentence got a pilot order in January 2017, and in May it became one of four new shows ordered to series (alongside Valor, Dynasty, and Black Lightning) by The CW. Created by Significant Mother’s Erin Cardillo and Richard Keith, Life Sentence looks to be headed for a mid-season premiere on the network. Executively produced by Cardillo, Keith, Oliver Goldstick, Bill Lawrence, Jeff Ingold, and pilot director Lee Toland Krieger, the show will move from its pilot filming location in Atlanta to Vancouver in July, to join the posse of other CW shows filmed in the Canadian location.

The hour-long episodes will star Pretty Little Liars’ Lucy Hale as Stella Abbott, a woman who was diagnosed with terminal cancer eight years earlier. She lived like each day was her last, crossing things off the life to-do list and even marrying Wes (Elliot Knight), a near stranger! But when she learns that her cancer has been cured, she has to deal with the aftermath of her “live like you’re dying” choices. With the threat of death no longer looming over her head, Stella learns of the many problems and secrets her father Paul (Dylan Walsh), mother Ida (Gillian Vigman), brother Aiden (Jayson Blair), sister Elizabeth (Brooke Lyons), and brother-in-law Darrius (Carlos PenaVega) had been hiding from her.
