After a clever (and kind) promotional campaign in which we were asked to raise 100k dollars for charity, the full Red Band Society pilot has been made available for preview on and Hulu (you can also watch it below). There’s a catch: it’s only available for 100 hours (until Tuesday)!

What’s the show about? A remake of the Spanish (Catalonian) series Polseres Vermelles, Red Band Society is a dramedy featuring a group of teenagers living at a hospital’s pediatric wardBut who better to tell you what the show is about that the person who adapted it for American TV, Margaret Nagle? Here’s what she had to say about the show, as seen in the comment section on Hulu/Facebook:

Inspired by the personal story of Albert Espinosa’s 14 years living in a Spanish hospital, this American version of his Red Band Society was developed visually recreating on the UCLA Daltery Townsend Teen Cancer Center. Teen pediatrics is a different field and goes through age 24. Hospitals all over the world are now being redesigned and allowing teens to realize their teen milestones despite the fact they are in a hospitalized. I developed the show for American TV and researched teen medicine and teen wings of hospitals. My own husband works with teens with cancer. Red Band is a medical show that deals with the patients as well as the doctors as teens have some of the longest hospital stays but also the highest rate of recovery.

You can watch the pilot, featuring Octavia Spencer, Dave Annable, Charlie Rowe and others, below.

Red Band Society premieres Wednesday, September 17 at 8/7c on FOX.

… is a young graduate student that has been way too passionate about television ever since she was little. While she insists she doesn’t have a specific type of show, they all usually have strong but flawed lady characters, some derivation of the stubborn friends-in-love/friends-to-lovers trope, and they all make her yell at her tv a lot. She just wishes she had more hours in the day so she could actually write about this.
You can usually find her on Twitter, Tumblr, and at cassidy at
