Justin Baldoni has a special message for all #CWLCFANS! The dates have shifted just a bit since he recorded this, but you still deserve the shout out!!
The docu-series is an inspirational look at what happens when we detach from the material things of the world, and live fully in the moment,” said Baldoni. “I’m proud to share these stories that remind people that each and every one of us has the power to choose happiness and to make a difference — regardless of the hand we’ve been dealt.”
“My Last Days” will also stream on The CW’s new digital vertical dedicated to giving back, CWGOOD. There you will also be able to find extended episodes of the docu-series. CWGOOD highlights the causes that CW stars and fans care about, with content that will both entertain and inspire. It will launch in August in conjunction with the premiere of MY LAST DAYS on The CW Network.
Learn a bit about the inspiring people featured in MY LAST DAYS:
