Life Sentence - Dramedy in Development at The CW

Since the CW entered the female-centered hourlong comedy/dramedy arena with Jane the Virgin, all of its shows in the genre have come from CBS TV Studios, Jane, My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and the upcoming No Tomorrow. Now the CW’s other studio partner, Warner Bros. TV, which is behind the network’s highly rated DC dramas, is entering the space in a big way with a project from one of the top comedy producers on its talent roster, Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence.

The CW has put in development Life Sentence, from WBTV and Lawrence’s studio-based Doozer Prods. Written by Significant Mother creators Erin Cardillo and Richard Keith, Life Sentence centers on a young woman diagnosed with terminal cancer. When she finds out that she’s not dying after all, she has to learn to live with the choices she made when she decided to “live like she was dying.”

Cardillo and Keith executive produce with Doozer’s Lawrence and Jeff Ingold.
