ABC Family's Cancer Drama 'Chasing Life' Debuts New Trailer (Exclusive Video)

The summer series stars Italia Ricci as an aspiring journalist who finds out she has cancer.

ABC Family's cancer drama Chasing Life has a new trailer.

After launching the series' first promo in March, the new footage further establishes the personal and professional obstacles that face aspiring journalist April Carver (Italia Ricci), a 24-year-old who discovers she has cancer.

The Hollywood Reporter exclusively debuts the minute-long promo, which starts with April receiving a chance at her newspaper to move up and her romantic life coming into full bloom. But after fainting at an event, April gets hit hard with the news from her oncologist uncle (Steven Weber) that she's sick.

"I don't want to die," says a sobbing April after learning the news.

Faced with a decision on how to proceed (and almost as important, who to tell), April decides to break the news to her best friend, Beth (Aisha Dee), because "literally the only person in my life who can handle this is you," April says -- before her friend uses the cancer bit to get better service at the restaurant.

There is also a glimpse of a weakened April walking down a hospital hallway and a very brief look at Greek alum Scott Michael Foster, who recurs.

"When it chooses you, you fight. What other choice do you have?" 

Chasing Life premieres June 10 at 9 p.m. on ABC Family.
