It was originally touted at Seven’s Upfronts as one of the new international dramas for 2015, but Red Band Society will finally have its Australian premiere at the very late time of 12:30am Wednesday August 26 (Tuesday night).
The hospital dramedy featuring Octavia Spencer and Dave Annable was pulled in the US by FOX after 10 episodes, and was not renewed behind its initial 13.
From Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television and starring Academy Award-winning actress Octavia Spencer (The Help), Dave Annable (Brothers & Sisters) and a charismatic cast of fresh faces, Red Band Society is a provocative, unconventional and unique coming-of-age dramedy about a group of rule-bending friends and the adults who mentor them through the ups and downs of adolescence in Los Angeles’ Ocean Park Hospital. Exploring everything from strong friendships and first loves, to humorous mishaps and heartbreaks, the series is a story of life, with an edgy comedic tone all its own.
It will be followed by the premiere of Manhattan Love Story at 1:30am Wednesday August 26 on Seven.
