Red Band Society
What if a hospital was your high school, boarding school, summer camp and playground? What if it was the place where you fell in love for the first time and made the friendships that last a lifetime - never knowing how long that lifetime will be? And what if it was the most fun you ever had in your entire life?
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 View Hospital in Los Angeles.
"Red Band Society" is produced by ABC Studios in association with Amblin Television. The series is executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, Darryl Frank ("The Americans," "Falling Skies"), Justin Falvey ("The Americans," "Falling Skies"), Sergio Aguero ("Y Tu Mama Tambien") and Margaret Nagle ("Boardwalk Empire," "The Good Lie"). Nagle wrote the pilot and developed the project for American television. Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (GLEE, "American Horror Story") directed the pilot.
