Red Band Society Red Band Society

Fox is aiming to establish a new kind of "brat pack" with its coming-of-age drama Red Band Society.

Set in the children's ward of a Los Angeles hospital, Red Band Society follows a Breakfast Club-esque group of patients as they such face life-changing — and life-threatening — challenges. Zoe LevinCharlie Rowe, AstroCiara Bravo, and Nolan Sotillo star as the unlikely group of friends. Dave AnnableRebecca Rittenhouse and Oscar winner Octavia Spencer take on the adult roles of the doctors and nurses who mentor them through the ups and downs of adolescence. The story is told through Griffin Gluck (Back in the Game), who stars as a coma patient.
