Summer is about to get a lot hotter when The CW unleashes 18 To Life, the hit Canadian comedy series about a modern-day Romeo and Juliet. The network will air all 12 half-hour episodes from the premiere season of 18 To Life on Tuesday nights beginning August 3, with back-to-back episodes airing at 9:00 and 9:30 p.m. ET.
In the premiere episode of 18 To Life, when Tom and Jessie - 18-year-old next-door neighbors who have grown up together – run off and get married, their warring families are forced to become one in this hilarious multi-generational half-hour about relationships, true love, and who takes out the garbage. The series explores intimate relationships in combustible combinations as husband-wife, mom-dad, and in-laws all struggle to influence the newlyweds and control the extended family's destiny. Tom and Jessie move into his parents' attic and their marriage becomes public property, creating an endless string of challenges for the couple. As this new love blooms audaciously amidst the two settled marriages, it stirs up new frictions and old passions in both sets of parents.
18 To Life stars Stacey Farber (Degrassi: The Next Generation) and Michael Seater (Life With Derek) as the young lovers, along with Peter Keleghan, Al Goulem, Ellen David, and Angela Asher (Degrassi: The Next Generation) as the parents, as well as Jesse Rath, and Tiio Horn.
It certainly is the summer of Canadian series as ABC has Rookie Blue and The Gates, CBS has The Bridge and Flashpoint, and NBC has Persons Unknown. Previously, 18 To Life was being co-developed with ABC, but they passed. The show, which has just begun production on its second season in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, airs in Canada on CBC Television. The series is distributed internationally by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
If the show does well, The CW would likely air that second season.

It's Friday, so it is time for "Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows" for the coming week. This is where we list what sitcom stars are appearing on talk shows for the coming week, the stars are both current and past sitcom stars (but we won't cover movie stars like Tom Hanks or John Travolta, since they won't be talking about their past sitcoms likely), so this is for all sitcom fans of all eras!
