Disease, whether it be cancer, an eating disorder or cystic fibrosis, has affected almost every single one of us.

In Fox’s Red Band Society, we see the journey and fight for life from a teen’s point of view.

The show, from Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television, starring Academy Award Winner Octavia Spencer, is a provocative, inspiring and, at times, comedic young ensemble drama told through the eyes of a group of teenagers who meet as patients in the pediatric ward of Ocean Park Hospital in Los Angeles.

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.

The teens form a life-changing bond and singular kinship, represented by their red hospital bands.

They face shared experiences, both uplifting and challenging, tragic and comedic, ordinary and out-of-the-ordinary – and they do it together.

When you’re brought to the brink, that’s when you laugh the loudest, love the strongest and cry the hardest.

This is the story of the RED BAND SOCIETY.

You won’t want to miss the premiere Wednesday right here on Fox 13 at 8 p.m. MT.

We will see you immediately after for the Fox 13 News at 9 p.m.
