Produced by evangelist Pat Robertson's CBN Network, "Another Life" initially emerged as a daily religious serial, which attempted to add a touch of "Christian morality" to traditional soap stories. Centering on the beleaguered Davidson family of Kingsley, Virginia, "Another Life" faced low-ratings and soon segued into more typical soapy fare, as murders, kidnappings, and an extremely bizarre story about a demonic cult leader highlighted its final years.

Another Life ran for 4 years in America and can be currently seen on the Inspiration Network in the UK. Set in the fictional town of Kingsley much of the action takes place around the hospital. Central characters include the heroine of the show Terry Davidson, her evil sister Nancy Lawson and bad boy Gil Prescott. Other pivitol characters include the larger than life Ione Redlon, the reformed Miriam Carpentor-Mason and rogue Russ Weaver. The show has a deeply religous theme and the characters often find their answers to the problems they are facing through god. What makes this show special is that some of the stories are just so outrageous but are always brought to a happy conclusion. Why the show was cancelled in America I do not know but in the UK I am enjoying it very much and the show will not be forgotten!
