TV show description:
This dramatic series follows a twenty-something aspiring journalist whose world is turned upside down when she learns that she has cancer.

Smart, charismatic and quick-witted, April Carver (Italia Ricci) seems poised to have it all. She’s landed a job at a major Boston newspaper and a date with her super-sexy co-worker — all while managing to be a supportive daughter, grand-daughter and sister to her family (who lost their patriarch to a tragic accident two years earlier).

In an unexpected twist of fate, April lands in the hospital where her estranged uncle, George, works as an oncologist. While there, she learns the devastating news that she has cancer. However, April refuses to give up her dreams and goals and fights to keep her life from unraveling.

April’s mother is Sara Carver (Mary Page Keller), a professional therapist who’s beautiful, smart, good-hearted and fiercely protective of her family. Following the sudden death of her husband, Sara is nervous but finally ready to return to the dating scene.

Sara’s other daughter is Brenna (Haley Ramm). She’s a rebellious teen who will always choose a party over homework — a habit that’s gotten her into serious trouble in the past. She continues to test her mother’s patience and envies the perfect image her sister April seems to effortlessly uphold.

April’s fun-loving but level-headed best friend and loyal confidant is Beth Kingston (Aisha Dee); a vibrant, young Australian-born girl in her twenties with a keen eye for fashion. Beth still works as a barista at the same coffee shop April left months ago to pursue her dreams. She optimistically believes that the best is yet to come and is determined to enjoy all that a carefree life has to offer in the meantime.

Cultured and attractive, Dominic Russo (Richard Brancatisano) is the Arts and Entertainment reporter at April’s Boston newspaper. Dominic’s job gets him into all the coolest gigs in the city and his irresistible charm could get him any girl he wants, but he has his eye on April from the moment she sets foot in the office. Their flirtatious banter finally leads to what seems like the perfect date, but her illness threatens the possibility of a real relationship without Dominic even knowing why.

The son of a wealthy gubernatorial candidate, Leo Hendrie (Scott Michael Foster) struggles with bitterness at living in his father’s shadow and being tethered to his family’s money. He has more in common with April than she might expect from their initial, rather unpleasant encounter.

George Carver (Steven Weber) is a pediatric oncologist whose connection to his brother Thomas’ tragic death two years ago has isolated him from the Carver women. In a twist of fate, he discovers April is sick so he must confront his past demons.

I like this show but I’ve seen a few comments about it being insensitive to cancer patients or just real enough. I can’t say one way or the other who’s right here cause I’ve been lucky not to have been affected by cancer. I greatly empathize with those who have and wish them well. But I would like to see how the story plays out and hope it stays on for a while at least.

I really like watching this show. However, if this show continues I would hope it would be geared towards people with cancer and not turned into a soap. Why just keep it to one person, there are a lot of people fighting cancer.

I have agree with ness, think it work good as a movie but it dose not need to be dragged out as a tv show. Cancel this and #renewravenswood, #renewtwisted. TV networks should never start a story line the can’t finish, in the first place. It’s not far to the fans or the future fans ether!!!!!!!!!!!

One flop after another. This might do worse than Twisted, but in no way would it make sense to throw cash at something just because it wasn’t as bad as something else.

Tbf, CL just doesn’t fit behind PLL. This is something that should be on with Switched at Birth or The Fosters. I heard this got a full season order, so maybe they will move it at the halfway mark and it might fair better with a more family orientated show.

Oops I meant if this show has good raitings then chasing life will get renewed for a second season and just may be family will renew twisted for a second season but we just don’t know if abc family will renew it not enough people were watching twisted on live and the abc family VP has hands on chasing life now and the abc family VP has hands to decide if twisted will hold the fan base abc family if not they would have to cancel it
