Executive producer Joseph Kay and star Torri Higginson talk to the Canadian Press about the premiere of THIS LIFE, and how the show promises to make audiences laugh and cry.
Kay related his own personal experience of his mother's fight against cancer, and said that THIS LIFE reflects his own family's journey.
"When it's happening to you, you don't sit around talking about your disease all the time. In fact, you never talk about it, you almost never talk about it," he said.
"You talk about life and the things that you're doing in life and try to find things that are still funny and interesting and all the other challenges of your life."
