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.

The reason this show was cancelled is the same reason practically nobody remembers Stryper or Petra and Left Behind: The Movie was a huge bomb. When good intentioned evangelists try to use a traditionally secular medium (in this case soap opera) to try and preach the Word of God, they tend to err by assuming that anybody other than God fearin' Christians would want to watch. Nobody wants to watch a soap opera where people happily solve their issues by turning to God. They want to watch miserable people wallow in their sorrow. They want to see people stab each other in the back and just be generally nasty. This is why people watch soap operas. As the ratings for Another Life dwindled, the storylines become MORE outrageous. Some of the ones they conconcted in this show's death throes would have made Melrose Place seem sane.
