RED BAND SOCIETY, starring Academy Award-winning actress Octavia Spencer ("The Help," "Fruitvale Station"), Dave Annable ("Brothers & Sisters," "666 Park Avenue") and a charismatic cast of fresh faces, 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.

Twelve-year-old narrator CHARLIE (Griffin Gluck) is in a coma and introduces us to this band of unlikely friends, including the "new kid," JORDI PALACIOS (Nolan Sotillo), a 16-year-old who comes to California to seek out treatment at the renowned hospital. What Jordi soon discovers is that it's not his illness that's going to change his life, but his new friends. Also at Ocean Park is LEO ROTH (Charlie Rowe), the 16-year-old, charming and independent "leader" of the group. Leo's best friend is DASH HOSNEY (Astro), a 16-year-old "rebel" with a big personality, who is determined not to let his cystic fibrosis stop him from living his life. Also on the ward is 15-year-old "know-it-all" EMMA CHOTA (Ciara Bravo, "Big Time Rush"), Leo's on-again-off-again girlfriend who is coping with an eating disorder. Rounding out this group of patients is KARA SOUDERS (Zoe Levin), a "mean girl" cheerleader who shares a room with Charlie. Although her heart is failing, she is realizing for the first time that she actually has one and begins opening it up to her new friends.

These 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.

RED BAND SOCIETY is produced by ABC Studios in association with Amblin Television. The series is executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, Rina Mimoun ("Mistresses"), Margaret Nagle ("Boardwalk Empire," "The Good Lie"), Justin Falvey ("The Americans," "Falling Skies"), Darryl Frank ("The Americans," "Falling Skies") and Sergio Aguero ("No Reservations," "Y Tu Mama Tambien"). Nagle wrote the pilot and developed the project from the award-winning Spanish series "Polseres Vermelles." Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (GLEE, "American Horror Story") directed the pilot.
