The CW is developing the Life Sentence TV show dramedy from Warner Bros. Television and Bill Lawrence’s Doozer production company. Life Sentence is written by executive producers Erin Cardillo and Richard Keith. They created the Significant Mother TV series, which seems to have been stealth cancelled after one season on The CW, as there is no mention of it on CWTV.com, nor in the network’s fall 2016 schedule.
Deadline reports, “Life Sentence centers on a young woman diagnosed with terminal cancer. When she finds out that she’s not dying after all, she has to learn to live with the choices she made when she decided to ‘live like she was dying’.” Lawrence and Jeff Ingold are executive producing for Doozer.
