The CW has set an August premiere for My Last Days, a documentary series about courageous people facing one of life’s most difficult challenges, a terminal illness.

Created and hosted by Jane The Virgin star Justin Baldoni, the three-night special event will air at 9 PM Wednesday-Friday August, 17-19. The docuseries features the stories of six real-life superheroes, who remind us that having a limited amount of time doesn’t mean we can’t make a positive impact on the world.

My Last Days 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.”

Those featured in the docuseries include a 19-year-old with cystic fibrosis who founded Claire’s Place Foundation, a nonprofit providing support to the children and families affected by the disease; a 25-year-old battling stomach cancer, who continues to inspire people with her vibrant personality and zest for life; and an aspiring sociologist born with a very rare medical condition (Mucopolysaccharidosis VI), who was not expected to live past 20. Now 21, she continues to research the disease and regularly organizes events to build awareness.

Extended episodes of My Last Days will be available on The CW’s new digital vertical dedicated to giving back, CWGOOD, which will launch in August in conjunction with the premiere of My Last Days.

My Last Days was created and directed by Justin Baldoni and produced by Wayfarer Entertainment, in association with SoulPancake, with executive producers Justin Baldoni, Rainn Wilson, Ahmed Musiol, Farhoud Meybodi and Sam Baldoni.
