This Wednesday marks the series premiere of Lucy Hale's new series "Life Sentence." Here's a preview of the "Pilot" episode.
When Stella (Hale), a young woman who has spent the last eight years of living like she was dying, finds out that her cancer has been cured. She is suddenly forced to face the long-term consequences of the "live at the moment" decisions she made, which includes marrying a total stranger. But she also finds out that her"perfect family" isn't so perfect after all, and everyone in her life hid their problems from her.
Stella is shocked to learn that her parents, Peter (Dylan Wash) and Ida (Gillian Vigman), have fallen out of love, her sister, Elizabeth (Brooke Lyons), gave up her dreams to start a family with her husband Diego (Carlos PenaVega) to take care of her. She also often overlooked brother Aiden (Jayosn Blair), who's pushing 30 and still lives above the garage, sells Adrenal to soccer moms and uses Stella's cancer to guilt them into sleeping with him.
Meanwhile, Stella's husband Wes (Elliot Knight), begins to worry that he can't continue to pretend to be her perfect husband for the rest of his life. With a real future suddenly in front of her, Stella's cinematic life snaps into reality, and instead of living like she was dying, she will have to learn to live like she's living and help her family and friends to do the same.
You can catch the series premiere of Life Sentence Wednesday, March 7th at 9/8c on The CW.
