ABC Family Gives Back Order to Series Ahead of Its Premiere Deadline
A new ABC Family drama doesn’t even have a premiere date yet, but the network has given it a back order for seven additional episodes.
Deadline.com reports that the cable channel gave the order to the series “Chasing Life,” meaning the first season will consist of 20 episodes.
The show is an adaptation of a Televisa series called “Terminales,” and stars Italia Ricci as a young newspaper reporter who is trying to balance family and work when she gets the news that she has cancer, the story says.
The series is set to bow sometime in early 2014.
