Why Red Band Society Is Worth Watching

17 September 2014 4:30 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

"Imagine how hard it is to make friends in a coma. I'm at a serious disadvantage here." On the premiere episode of Fox's excellent new comedy-drama Red Band Society, those words are spoken in voiceover by 12-year-old Charlie (Griffin Gluck). Eyes closed to the world, but ears able to take in everything going on around him, Charlie is unconscious in a hospital ward for children and teenagers. Charlie is the show's narrator, and he can make his presence felt, one way or the other. When he's forced to share his room with a cheerleader who smokes, he retaliates with flatulence. »

Red Band Society Review – TV Fox

Red Band Society Review

The new Fox effort, Red Band Society is the kind of show that gives you a new jolt of hope for television, but also leaves you fearful… because you’ve watched TV before.

The first thing you’ll notice about the trailers and promos for the show is the shortage of adults, but you probably won’t believe a non-cable network series will be brave enough to let the post-teens fade into the background. Thankfully, what seems obvious isn’t the case. Even with notable names like Octavia Spencer and Dave Annable serving as head nurse and the nation’s top pediatric surgeon, they aren’t around that much.

The show is about a group of young patients living in a hospital, who have some serious illnesses and/or are generally not in a great state of health. The series kicks off with Jordi (Nolan Sotillo »

TV Review: ‘Red Band Society’

16 September 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In terms of manipulating an audience, few things are more reliable than sick or imperiled kids. With that as a given, Fox’s “Red Band Society” labors to feel uplifting, not depressing, by filtering a “The Breakfast Club”-like erosion of high-school caste systems through the leveling effect of a potentially fatal diagnosis. Narrated by a young boy in a coma (a device somewhere between “Reversal of Fortune” and “The Lovely Bones”), the pilot doesn’t do enough to establish these archetypal characters — adults or children. And there’s cause to doubt whether the show will have the time to effectively bridge that gap.

Developed by Margaret Nagle from a Spanish series, and counting the very busy Steven Spielberg among its producers, the program operates on two tracks: focusing on the children brought together by illness — creating an environment, as one helpfully notes, where “the walls break down” — and on »

Review: Fox's 'Red Band Society'

16 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Among the main characters of Fox's new drama "Red Band Society" (Wednesday at 9 p.m.), two suffer from cancer, one needs a heart transplant, and one is in a prolonged coma. All of them are 16 years old or younger. Fictional stories about seriously ill people are already fraught with emotion. When the ill people are kids, the inherent emotions are so overwhelming that a storyteller has to either address them head-on or work around them. You can heighten everything else to try to equal the feeling of tragedy and wasted potential, or you can underplay everything to keep the story from drowning in sadness. "Red Band Society," adapted by Margaret Nagle from the Spanish-language series “Polseres Vermelles," tries both approaches at once, with mixed but mostly promising results. If it can pull back on some of its excesses — if it can be the good version of "Glee," rather than the bad version, »

Pediatric Hospital Drama ‘Red Band Society’ Is ‘Not a Show with a Body Count’

21 July 2014 7:40 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

While the premise of Fox’s “Red Band Society” might seem depressing on the surface — the Octavia Spencer dramedy is set in the pediatric ward of a hospital — the show’s producers are aiming for a show that will make you laugh just as much as it makes you cry, treating the hospital as “high school, boarding school and summer camp rolled into one.”

The series focuses on the lives of the hospital’s young inhabitants and the staff members who often serve as their teachers, mentors and surrogate parents in addition to overseeing their medical care.

“Pediatrics goes through age 24 and 85 percent of all kids with any one of these diseases recover,” executive producer Margaret Nagle pointed out at the Television Critics Assn. summer press tour on Sunday. “It’s really about that time you spend in the hospital, how it changes you and what you learn… there are »

Fox is taking a risk with a unique teen based show, Red Band Society. The show will follow a group of teen who live at the pediatric ward of Ocean Park Hospital.

You can check out the trailer for the series that premiers this fall down below. Here is the official description for the series.

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. »

Fox's new fall shows: A snap judgment

12 May 2014 5:05 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

When Ryan Seacrest kicks off the upfronts by welcoming Pitbull to the stage with his entourage of booty-dancers, you know that Fox isn’t catering to your mom. (Unless your mom is one of Pitbull’s booty-dancers, in which case, lucky you!) So it’s no surprise that Kevin Reilly, Fox’s chairman of entertainment, followed Pitbull’s performance with the announcement that Fox is branding itself as “America’s Next Generation Network,” focusing on a youthful audience. That might also explain why Andy Samberg was there, making some decent quips for the benefit of his fellow Next Generation Americans — and a few self-aware advertisers, »
