Girl in a jacket

Lucy Hale

After the Pretty Little Liars bid their fans good bye, Aria Montgomery a.k.a. Lucy Hale returns on ETC as Stella Abbott in her latest series LIFE SENTENCE.

LIFE SENTENCE follows Stella, a girl who has spent the last eight years living like she was dying (because she was). Just like the “manic pixie dream girl” heroines in her favorite sappy cancer movies, Stella traveled the world, faced her darkest fears and found true love on a whirlwind trip to Paris. But when Stella finds out that her cancer has been cured, she is suddenly forced to face the long-term consequences of the “live in the moment” decisions she made, including marrying a total stranger.

Everyone closest to Stella seemed to have broken apart including her parents’ marriage, her sister giving up on her own dreams to take care of her when she was sick, and there’s Stella’s often overlooked brother, Aiden, who’s pushing 30 and still lives above the garage, sells Adderall to soccer moms and uses Stella’s cancer to guilt them into sleeping with him. Wes, Stella’s handsome Londoner who she agreed to spend the rest of her life with, now begins to worry that he can’t continue to pretend to be her perfect husband for the rest of his life.

Stella’s cinematic life takes on a 360-turn for probably the worst and she will have to learn to live like she’s living and help her family and friends do the same.

What would it be like for Stella from here on? Catch the pilot episode of LIFE SENTENCE on March 8, Thursday, via satellite at 3 PM and on primetime at 9 PM on ETC.
