ABC Family has picked up “Chasing Life” (formerly known as “Terminales”), the pilot that was shot around Boston last fall. Sadly, the television show won’t be filmed here. The network confirmed this week that it’s given a green light to the drama but that production will now take place in Santa Clarita, Calif., near Los Angeles. According to the network’s description of the show, it will still take place in Boston. “Chasing Life” is about a young Boston newspaper reporter (played by Italia Ricci) who is diagnosed with a terminal illness. The pilot was shot all over town, including at the Globe. (We’re pretty sure that some of our sports editors made it into the background of some scenes.)
