ABC Family is staying in the family for drama pilot Terminales.
The dramatic adaptation of the Mexican drama by Miguel Angel Fox revolves around April (Italia Ricci), a 23-year-old girl who is diagnosed with a terminal illness.
Soap veteran Mary Page Keller, fresh off a guest turn on the cable network’s Pretty Little Liars, will play Sara, the widowed mother to April and her14-year-old sister, Brenna.

Sara is described as being charmingly neurotic and typically incapable of finishing a sentence who, thanks to April’s advice, begins to re-enter the dating world despite the fact that her own mother lives with them.
Aaron Kaplan (GCB, Terra Nova) will serve as executive producer on the Lionsgate/Televisa project. Susanna Fogel and Joni Lefkowitz, who wrote the pilot, also serve as EPs.
Keller, whose credits include arcs on soaps Ryan’s Hope and Another World, recently had guest turns on Hart of Dixie, Perception and Supernatural.
She’s repped by SMS Talent and the Pitt Group. ABC Family picked up Terminales to pilot in September.
