Trailer for Fox’s Red Band Society

After giving us a selection of trailers for its Fall 2014-15 season, Fox has slowly been leaking out trailers for the remaining shows. First up was The Last Man on Earth and now we have Red Band Society, the second attempt at an adaptation of Catalan series Polseres vermelles* that sees a group of teenagers living together as patients on a hospital’s paediatric ward. Stars include Octavia Spencer and Dave Annable and it’s narrated by a kid in a coma. Oh yes it is.


* The first was for ABC in 2011
