Life Sentence – Season 1 (TV Series)
Life Sentence season 1 was greenlit by The CW for 13 x 60 minute episodes this spring. The series was created by Fuller House producers Erin Cardillo and Richard Keith. The story is centred around a girl named Stella, who has spent the last 8 years living life to its fullest after being diagnosed with cancer. She eventually finds out that she’s beat the cancer, but that turns out to be both a blessing and a curse.
She may not be on the verge of death anymore, but now she has to face her friends, family and all of the spur of the moment decisions she’s made over the last few years head on. The official logline sums the show up as a “multi-generational, coming-of-age story” that depicts how “we all end up living somewhere between our dreams and reality”.
Lucy is no stranger to filming in British Columbia, or having her TV shows relocate after filming their pilot episode. Pretty Little Liars filmed its pilot in Vancouver and area before relocating to Los Angeles for the rest of the series. She also filmed a Lifetime movie called Sorority Wars in Victoria in 2009. Lucy’s PLL pal Janel Parrish, who played Mona on the show, has also been in Vancouver for filming over the past month. Her latest project, a young adult movie called To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, just wrapped up production in the area last week.

Life Sentence Season 1 Trailer
Here’s the first look trailer for Life Sentence season 1 that the CW shared this spring. After watching, it’s easy to see how Vancouver will be able to pick up where Atlanta left off; a lot of the shots look like they could have easily been filmed in Gastown.
