Brancatisano (Home and Away, Underbelly: Razor, Reef Doctors, White Collar Blue) plays a love interest in the series that follows April Carver (Italia Ricci) – a young up-and-coming newspaper journalist who learns she has cancer.
Actor Richard Brancatisano said, “I’m thrilled my new series Chasing Life now has a home on FOX8 where Australian audiences will be able to watch it. Getting a role on an American television series is such a massive dream come true for me.
“I’m incredibly fortunate to be part of the ABC Family network and be working on such a brave new series like Chasing Life.
“The way the show deals with someone who is diagnosed with cancer at such a young age is very real but at the same time uplifting too. It depicts how it affects every aspect of your life – from personal relationships to the workplace.”
The brand new series with its controversial storyline based around leukemia is an adaptation of the hit Mexican television series Terminales and was cable television’s number one show for 18-39 year olds when it premiered in the US on June 10, 2014.
Mondays from July 21 at 8.30pm FOX8.
