"Ten Years to Life" is the first episode of the seventh season of Queen of the Willis, following the revival of the series seven years after its cancellation in 2012. It aired on broadcast syndication in the United States on March 1, 2019, though it premiered on March 1, 2019 on WXXC in Fort Wayne and March 2, 2019 on WEVI in Indianapolie. In the episode, Karly Jameson invites Ava, Melissa, Tiffani, and Pamhouser to her four day festival in Quillsville during the annual FeatherStock, but is nearly ruined after Karly is attacked by Jill Da Rippa. Meanwhile, Angie, Stephanie Rose, Maribel Sabo, and Lilly Abhrams decide to interview potential friends, and are approached by a fellow bar patron named Christiana Sellars.

Queen of the Willis had been canceled in 2012 due to low ratings, but was revived by NoSirGifts after reruns on the company's Fox and independent stations became the station's most watched program in those markets. The episode was written and directed by series creator Ava Zinn. The episode contains many cultural references; in the opening sequence Angie lists shows that were canceled by CBS or dropped by Fort Wayne independet station WXXC after Queen of the Willis was canceled and says that if all of those shows were to be canceled/dropped, they might have a chance at returning.
