FOX to air new hospital dramedy, “Red Band Society,” this fall
Been too long since you’ve been able to criticize those crazy-inaccurate orders the nurse is giving on your TV screen? Have no fear: FOX has just announced a new show set in a hospital for its fall television lineup.
Red Band Society will air Wednesdays from 9-10 p.m. starting this fall. Variety describes the show as “a coming-of-age dramedy…about teenagers living in a pediatric wing of a hospital.”
Charlie, the 12-year-old narrator of the show, is in a coma in Ocean Park Hospital in Los Angeles. The show focuses around him and his fellow patients, as well as the nurse who runs the pediatric ward and the country’s top pediatrician, among others.
FOX sums up the story like this:
Although many young patients who are seriously ill make complete recoveries, that day seems a long way off for these teens. And as they confront questions of life and death which no one at that age should have to face, a kinship based on these shared experiences is created – a bond represented by the red hospital bands issued to them upon admittance. This is the story of the “Red Band Society.”
