What to Watch on Tuesday: Young woman deals with cancer on new ‘Chasing Life’

The new ABC Family drama “Chasing Life” is about a young reporter whose life changes when she is diagnosed with cancer.

Chasing Life (9pm, ABC Family) - In the series premiere of this drama about an ambitious young reporter who won’t give up on her dreams, April ( Italia Ricci) gets a chance to impress her boss and her office romance begins to prosper (let’s hope these two plot elements are unrelated, but given Hollywood’s track record of portraying female reporters, I’m not overly confident...). But here’s the kicker: just when all these other things are going great, April gets the news that she has cancer.

Also on tonight . . .

Pretty Little Liars (8pm, ABC Family) - In the Season 5 opener, a wounded Ezra heads the hospital, where Aria stays by his side because his knowledge about “A” puts him in additional peril.
