ABC Family's gives 'Chasing Life' series order

ABC FamilyTerminales has new life, as Chasing Life.

ABC Family has greenlit the series, under its new moniker. This is the third drama series that the network has ordered this pilot season out of three possible pilots. Murder mystery Twisted and The Fosters each earlier got the green light and will premiere this summer.

Chasing Life is based upon a Mexican format created by Miguel Angel Fox. The series will focus on a woman who is diagnosed with a terminal illness and look at how it affects her life. 

Cast members announced include Italia Ricci, Mary Page Keller, Aisha Dee, Richard Brancatisano, Haley Ramm and Abhi Sinha.

Ten episodes have been ordered for Chasing Life, with an intended premiere date of sometime in early 2014. Production commences this July in Santa Clarita, California.

Susanna Fogel and Joni Leftkowitz will serve as executive producers, along with Aaron Kaplan. Lefkowitz also wrote the pilot.

Eight new series (both scripted and unscripted) will be premiering this summer on ABC Family, its busiest premiere season in quite some time. That number could increase, as the network still has not officially decided on The Lying Game and Bunheads, at this time. 

Later this year it will also premiere its Pretty Little Liars spinoff, Ravenswood. That will take place in October.
