New tonight: 18 to Life on CBC – series premiere “A Modest Proposal”

18 TO LIFE is about a couple that does the unthinkable in the name of love: they run off and get married at the tender age of 18. Their parents—next-door neighbours and polar opposites—are less than thrilled and even their peers disapprove. As Tom and Jessie struggle to become man and wife in a world that still views them as kids, the tension between their families adds a dose of biting humour to their sweet love story.

Cast includes Stacey Farber as Jessie, Michael Seater as Tom, Peter Keleghan, Al Goulem, Ellen David, Angela Asher, Jesse Rath, Tiio Horn, Tommie-Amber Pirie and Ariel Shiri.

Eps 1 – A Modest Proposal – Tom and Jessie announce their engagement, throwing their families into a chaos.
