ABC Family has made some adjustments to its summer schedule, moving the premiere dates for the drama “Chasing Life” and the new unscripted show “Monica the Medium.”
“Chasing Life” will now premiere Monday, July 6, at 10 p.m. ET/PT, with “Monica The Medium” now set to debut Monday, Aug. 17, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
“Season two of ‘Chasing Life’ picks up moments after Leo’s surprising marriage proposal,” the network notes in its announcement. “April will try to live life to the fullest despite her recent relapse. From wedding dress shopping to a surprise trip, and a bachelorette party ending in jail time, April is determined to enjoy everything. The rest of the Carver family must deal with the effects of April’s illness and choices as the medical bills start to mount up. Meanwhile, questions arise about a mystery surrounding their father’s death.”
The announcement adds: “’Monica the Medium’ provides a fascinating look at Monica, a junior at Penn State navigating friends, family, relationships — and the fact that she’s a medium and can talk to dead people. Her uncommon vocation provides an endless supply of emotional and engaging stories, with a unique millennial perspective.”
“Monica the Medium” is produced by Dave Caplan’s Trooper Entertainment in association with Lionsgate TV. Caplan will serve as executive producer along with Malachi McGlone.
