One of the new Fox shows heading to air this fall, “Red Band Society,” was one of the few on the initial broadcast upfronts lineup without a full trailer until now. The three-minute look seemingly starts as a hospital comedy through the eyes of a nurse, but takes a turn into more serious territory with the stories of teenagers: “This is me talking to you from a coma. Deal with it.”
“Red Band Society,” starring Octavia Spencer, is based on the Spanish show “Polseres Vermelles” and follows as kids in a hospital’s pediatric ward deal with their diagnoses. A soccer player is about to lose his leg to cancer, a cheerleader may not get a heart transplant because of her own misdeeds and a cancer patient knows the hospital wing like it’s his home.
