Life Sentence (The CW) – Premieres 7th March – Cancelled
A comedy drama where after spending the past eight years believing that she has terminal cancer, Stella discovers just before her funeral party that she has beaten the illness and is cured.
After revealing the good new to her family, she then finds out that most of what she knows about her family has been a lie. As they were told to keep a positive vibe around her so she had a memorable final few years.
Stella discovers that her parents are in financial trouble, and are separating after her mother has started a relationship with her godmother. She also discovers that her brother has been using her illness to guilt trip women to sleep with him and has no career opportunities. Finds out that her sister gave up her chance to go to college to look after her giving up her dream on becoming a writer. And discovers that her husband of six months has spent most of the time telling white lies to make last days as idilic as possible.
After trying her best to clumsily get everything back to how she perceived there were while she was ill, Stella realises that she has to readapt to life and change the outlook she’s had last few years.
As dramas go this is a standard fluffy CW style show, that’s pretty much forgettable from the off.
