    "18 TO LIFE" BRINGS SUMMER LOVING TO THE CW
    Released by The CW

    Romantic Comedy to Air Tuesday Nights Beginning August 3

    July 15, 2010 (Burbank, CA) - Summer is about to get a lot hotter when The CW unleashes 18 TO LIFE, the hit Canadian comedy series about a modern-day Romeo and Juliet. The network will air all 12 half-hour episodes from the premiere season of 18 TO LIFE on Tuesday nights beginning August 3, with back-to-back episodes airing from 9:00-9:30 and 9:30-10:00 p.m. ET.

    In the premiere episode of 18 TO LIFE, when Tom and Jessie - 18-year-old next-door neighbors who have grown up together - run off and get married, their warring families are forced to become one in this hilarious multi-generational half-hour about relationships, true love, and who takes out the garbage. The series explores intimate relationships in combustible combinations as husband-wife, mom-dad, and in-laws all struggle to influence the newlyweds and control the extended family's destiny. Tom and Jessie move into his parents' attic and their marriage becomes public property, creating an endless string of challenges for the couple. As this new love blooms audaciously amidst the two settled marriages, it stirs up new frictions and old passions in both sets of parents.

    18 TO LIFE stars Stacey Farber ("Degrassi: The Next Generation") and Michael Seater ("The Sin Bin," "Life With Derek") as the young lovers, along with Peter Keleghan ("Billable Hours," "The Newsroom"), Al Goulem ("The Tournament," "Stardom"), Ellen David ("Surviving My Mother," "The Business"), and Angela Asher ("Degrassi: The Next Generation," "Queer as Folk") as the parents, as well as Jesse Rath ("The Trotsky," "Prom Wars"), and Tiio Horn ("Wild Hunt," "The Trotsky").

    The show, which has just begun production on its second season in Montreal, Canada, is a co-production between Galafilm Inc. and Sound Venture Inc. in association with CBC Television. The series airs in Canada on the CBC, and is distributed internationally by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.

    The series is created, written, and executive produced by Gemini Award-winning writer Derek Schreyer ("Murdoch Mysteries," "Cold Squad"), International Emmy Award-winning producer Karen Troubbetzkoy ("15/Love," "The Magician's House") and PrimeTime Emmy Award-winning Galafilm CEO Arnie Gelbart.

    According to this article written 24 Aug 2010:
    http://www.c21media.net/news/detail....&article=57020
    US netlet The CW will run the remaining episodes of Canadian sitcom 18 to Life in December and may come back for a second season, according to executive producer Arnie Gelbart.
    (...)
    "For a number of internal reasons they want to run the last six in December," said Gelbart. He added that the series performed relatively well, drawing between 850,000 and almost one million viewers, with very little promotion.
    By visiting the CW's website, there's no trace of "18 To Life" on their website, meaning it won't air anytime after the Vampire Diaries week (Dec 13-17).

    Season 2 of 18 To Life is expeced to air in january 2011 on CBC.
    We had a good run: 2006 to 2020. Thanks for the informations and debates.
