Review of Chasing Life

60 minutes

Chasing Life follows twenty-something April (Italia Ricci), a smart and quick-witted aspiring journalist, who is trying to work her way up the ladder at a Boston newspaper. 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.

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

This show was amazing! The premise is very depressing, but it is also true for so many people. I enjoyed this show not because it was "fun" or "entertaining" but because it seemed, for the most part, real. I have known people who have lived with (and died from) cancer, so to me, it felt like I got to be a part of their lives again. I am sad it got canceled, but I'm glad it existed for at least a little while.
