Chasing Life Chat- Richard Brancatisano

Published

on


Chasing Life is shaping up to be a huge summer hit. The ABC Family show premiered last Tuesday following Pretty Little Liars and focused on a young woman named April Carver, who finds out she has cancer. Except this tale isn’t a sappy cancer story. It’s the complete opposite. April is a determined 24-year-old reporter who isn’t just going to let cancer get the best of her. Life is too good to let a thing like cancer bring her down, especially now that she’s excelling in her job and going out with the super hot guy from work, Dominic.


Richard Brancatisano, plays Dominic and recently spoke to the TV Addict of what it was like to be a part of this fun and inspiring show.

“After I read the script, I fell in love with it straight away. I love scripts that are based in our time, and in this day and age, it’s stuff that’s really relevant. What I loved about the script was how relevant it was to everyday things that people go through in their lives. That was the first thing, apart from the fact that it’s really funny and very witty. I just couldn’t put it down. That’s what the best indicator is, when you read a script really quickly and you’re wanting to see what’s on the next page, and you put it down and you’re really excited. You listen to that feeling. That’s always a good sign,” Brancatisano explained of what initially drew him to the show.

When asked if Brancatisano’s character is a ladies man, he admitted that he used to be but now he’s in his 30’s and looking for someone to settle down with. “Obviously, he’s been a player and a ladies-man for the last ten years of his life, and there’s always going to be a residue of that. It’s going to be hard to change. But I think deep down he’s probably getting to that stage where is looking for something different. But just because you want something in your life, it doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy to get it. You’ve still got little habits that will inform the way you are acting and you want to act differently. So I think that’s the struggle for Dominic. He’s getting to the point where he knows that there’s something more and he wants it. But it’s a struggle because he acted in a certain way in his past and that can catch up with you,” he said.

As for his relationship with April, how does he deal with the fact that she has a health issue when she finally does tell him.

“That’s a really hard question and I think it’s not so much about whether she should tell him straight away or not, but it is how he views her when she does end up telling him. It’s like in life, you make choices and I think the choice she made, she was making the best choice she could based on everything that was going on in her life. So it’s hard to say whether she should or not. But that doesn’t stop Dominic from having a reaction toward her choice, whether he is going to be able to live with it and what that means for their relationship. Also he has a past where he’s been lied to, so he needs to forgive and he needs to learn how to have some compassion — to be able to step into other people’s shoes and see that it is not an attack on him. That it’s not a personal thing. It’s just an understanding where the other person is coming from and working through that initial reaction and really looking into someone’s circumstances and trying to find out why they did what they did.”

His hosting run will go through the end of December, per TV Line. He will also be introduced for the first time as “host of Jeopardy!”

The coveted Tournament of Champions is slated to begin on Monday, October 31. Throughout the tournament’s run, one episode will air that will not impact the outcome of the competition.

Michael Davis, who is the executive producer this season, said during the Inside Jeopardy! Podcast that the special will pay tribute to the late Alex Trebek on the anniversary of his death.

There’s a lot Jeopardy! content that fans can look forward to this season, including Celebrity Jeopardy kicking off on Sunday, September 25. Bialik will host the celebrity-focused primetime special, exclusively, before taking over hosting duties from Jennings in January. She’s also set to host a couple of new tournaments as well as the Jeopardy! National College Championship depending on her Call Me Kat schedule and availability.

Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin

‘Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin’ Renewed for Season 2 — But What Comes Next?

Published

Pretty Little Liars Original Sin Review Season 1 Episode 9

If you logged onto the internet today and saw Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin trending, you knew it could go either one of two ways—either HBO Max renewed the series for a second season… or, the murder mystery met its match and was a short-lived, yet promising, run. 

Thankfully, it’s the former!

HBO Max has decided to stick around Millwood for a bit longer as it officially renewed the series, per The Hollywood Reporter.

The show’s 10-episode run impressed fans and even tied up loose ends by revealing who ‘A’ was rather than stringing the mystery along for several seasons like its predecessor on Freeform.

“We are so proud of the incredible response both critically and from fans that Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin has received,” said HBO Max head of originals Sarah Aubrey. “Viewers have embraced our new generation of Liars, and Roberto and Lindsay’s brilliantly dark, horror-fueled take on this iconic franchise. Along with Alloy and Warner Bros. Television, we are thrilled to continue the Pretty Little Liars legacy.”

PLL: OS, created by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and co-creator Lindsay Calhoon Bring, is now considered a legacy title and joins the ranks of Sex and the City and Gossip Girl, both of which were renewed by the streamer. 

Season 1 starred Bailee Madison, Chandler Kinney, Zaria, Malia Pyles, Maia Reficco, Mallory Bechtel, Sharon Leal, Elena Goode, Eric Johnson, Alex Aiono and Lea Salonga.

Madison evens showed off her excitement in this celebratory tweet:

As for why the season wrapped up its core mystery, Bring previously told TVLine, “It was important to us with a cable show — a short-order show, a serialized show — to complete these stories and complete these mysteries,” adding, “Roberto and I love a complete story, so we wanted to complete these mysteries.” Of course, this begs the question, what’s next?

The door was left slightly ajar with “A” escaping the hospital in order to seek his revenge on Chip, one of the show’s villains in his own right, but with the mystery of the masked killer’s identity revealed, it’s unclear how the series will keep up the intriguing in a second season. However, Aguirre-Sacasa promised it would follow the same group of girls and seemed confident that viewers would remain hooked noting that they have  “some preliminary ideas.”

“We certainly have a lot of places for these characters to go, new mysteries to tell and hopefully new ways to scare people,” he added.

Either way, we can’t wait.
