Carlos PenaVega (Grease: Live) has been cast as a series-regular opposite Lucy Hale in Life Sentence, the CW’s dramedy pilot from WBTV and Bill Lawrence’s studio-based Doozer Prods. Written by Significant Mother creators Erin Cardillo and Richard Keith and directed by Lee Toland Krieger, Life Sentence centers on Stella (Hale), a young woman diagnosed with terminal cancer. When she finds out that she’s not dying after all, she has to learn to live with the choices she made when she decided to “live like she was dying.” PenaVega will play Darrius, Lucy’s brother-in-law. He’s the extremely positive and family-loving, Pharma rep who Stella’s sister, Elizabeth, met during one of her hospital stays. PenaVega most recently starred opposite Vanessa Hudgen as Kenickie in Grease: Live. He’s repped by APA, Vision Entertainment and Morris Yorn.
