ABC Family heads back to Boston

Sources tell us that ABC Family is returning to Boston later this month to shoot more scenes for its new series “Chasing Life.” The network filmed the show’s pilot around town (and at the Globe) last year. The drama, which will debut in 2014, is about a Boston newspaper reporter (played by Italia Ricci, inset, one of Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s conquests in his new movie, “Don Jon”) who discovers that she has a terminal illness. The series was going to be shot entirely in Boston, but then production moved to Los Angeles. We assume that the crew is coming back for some exterior shots —
because you just can’t fake fall in
New England.
