Formerly titled Terminales, the project follows April, an aspiring journalist (played by Unnatural History‘s Italia Ricci) who, just as things are starting to go her way, gets some terrible news from her uncle: She has cancer.

    Terminales (Chasing Life) is an original mexican series from Televisa, the same people behind of the original version of Devious Maids. Latinamerican series actually are really good, and I enjoy to see the US versions. Not all our shows are Telenovelas. There are a plenty projects based on latin shows like “Mi Problema con las mujeres”, “La Lola”, “Los Simuladores”, “Rebelde Way”, “Epitafios”, “El Pantera”, who wait for a greenlight.

    Glad to see him back on TV, although wish the show sounded better. I seem to remember reading somewhere that his Anger Management character is a love interest for Michael Arden’s Patrick; if that’s true, well, that’s downright adorable!
