“With its emotional storylines and rich characters lead by the talented Lucy Hale, LIFE SENTENCE is poised to become one of Bravo’s most-beloved series,” said Pat DiVittorio, Vice-President, Programming, CTV and Specialty. “LIFE SENTENCE is appointment viewing, adding to Bravo’s distinguished slate of must-see dramas.” In the premiere episode (Wednesday, March 7 at 8 p.m. ET), Stella Abbott has spent the last eight years living like she was dying - because she was. Stella travelled the world, faced her darkest fears, and found true love. But, when she finds out that her cancer has been cured, she is suddenly forced to face the long-term consequences of the “live in the moment” decisions she made, including marrying a total stranger. The entire first season launches on CraveTV following the season finale on Bravo, bolstering CraveTV’s popular Dramas Collection featuring TWIN PEAKS, THE AFFAIR, MISTRESSES, THE ROYALS, and CASUAL, among others. LIFE SENTENCE, from WBTV and Bill Lawrence’s (SCRUBS) studio-based Doozer Productions, also stars Elliot Knight (ONCE UPON A TIME), Dylan Walsh (NIP/TUCK), Gillian Vigman (DIVORCE), Jayson Blair (Whiplash), Brooke Lyons (THE AFFAIR) and Carlos PenaVega (BIG TIME RUSH). Erin Cardillo and Richard Keith executive produce with Lawrence and Jeff Ingold along with Oliver Goldstick and Lee Toland Krieger.
