Red Band Society season 1, episode 1 airs tonight on Fox.
Leo has a new roommate who’s about to have a procedure he knows all too well. A cheerleader is upset when she’s no longer the center of attention.
What if a hospital was your high school, boarding school and summer camp rolled into one? What if it was the place where you fell in love for the first time and made friendships that lasted a lifetime? And what if it was all weirdly hilarious and the most fun you ever had in your entire life? This is the world of Red Band Society. From Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television, starring Academy Award-winning actress Octavia Spencer (The Help, Fruitvale Station) and based on the award-winning Spanish series, Polseres Vermelles, Red Band Society is a provocative, unconventional and, at times, comic high school drama told through the eyes of a group of teenagers who meet as patients in the pediatric ward of Ocean Park Hospital in Los Angeles. The series is part comedy, part drama, with a tone that’s unique unto itself.
Red Band Society season 1, episode 1 airs Sept. 17 at 9 p.m. EDT on Fox.
