I originally wanted to write this entire article in the 3rd person, but seeing how it is an exclusive interview with Italia Ricci the star of one of my favorite summer shows, Chasing Life, it didn’t quite work. This season April saw her Cancer go into remission, finally got married to Leo (Scott Michael Foster), then her cancer came back, find out secrets about her father and lose Leo. It’s been a real roller coaster season. I had a quick call (meaning 5 mins, so of course I didn’t ask everything that I wanted 2) with Italia and talked about this season.
Telulah Farrow has precisely two obsessions in life: filmmaking and the band All Time Low. She also has a couple of problems: not having a subject for her high school film project, and a social media savvy mom.
When one leads to the the other, Telulah might just have the chance to turn her two obsessions into that film project in Fan Girl – a world television premiere coming to ABC Family on Saturday, October 3rd (9/8C).
Fan Girl stars Kiernan Shipka as Telulah and Meg Ryan as her mom, Mary. Also co-starring are Kara Hayward (Moonrise Kingdom), Scott Adsit (Big Hero 6), Bill Sage (We Are What We Are) and newcomer Joshua Boone. For more, follow the jump.
ABC Family’s Chasing Life is one of my top 10 favorite shows at the moment. The show follows the Carver family as they struggle through their 20 something daughters struggle to fight and survive cancer. The show is about how having cancer impacts not only the patient but all those around the patient. Chasing Life Airs on ABC Family, Mondays night.

Monica Ten-Kate is just another typical girl going to college. She has friends, goes on dates, pulls all-nighters and hangs out with her roommates. The only thing that’s different about Monica is that she talks to dead people – and they respond! Not only that, but Monica is a real person and ABC Family’s new series, Monica the Medium (Tuesdays, 8/7C) is an hour-long, unscripted show that follows her through both sides of her life: the mundane and the supernatural.
Recently, Monica spoke with a group of bloggers/journalists about her life and her gift. It made for an interesting experience.
