Get ready to shed tears on Wednesdays in the fall: Fox unveiled the first trailer for Red Band Society on Friday, and the Steven Spielberg-exec-produced drama is sure to be a tearjerker.
The series takes place in a children’s hospital and follows a group of sick kids, but as EW TV critic Melissa Maerz wrote in her snap judgment of the new fall offerings on Fox, this isn’t your typical Sad Show. “Yes, it’s narrated by a boy in a coma, which might feel like a little much. But the pilot was written by Margaret Nagle (Boardwalk Empire), so there’s potential for real poignancy, especially at a time when The Fault in Our Stars is already resonating with so many young people. Consider those tears jerked.”
Check out the trailer — which also features adult stars Octavia Spencer and Dave Annable — below:
