Synopsis

  • Season 1 (13x45') COMPLETED
  • Season 2 (15x45') 1Q2013
The Red Band Society” is a story of friendship, overcoming obstacles and the will to live. The show puts the role of the doctors to one side and gives the protagonism to the patients, kids aged between 8 and 17 who, despite their illness, have the same worries as any child their age and the same desire to laugh, fall in love and to discover new things. The ever present tenderness and sense of humour add a vitalistic tone to the series.

At Season 1, TRBS shows what life is like for six kids in hospital, how they settle in and how their stay at the centre will also change the lives of those around them, their families, the doctors and their friends.

At Season 2, two years have gone by. Most of the kids from Season1 have left the hospital, but some are still in and out of it. The RedBands share very powerful memories, some of them are painful ones and not everyone wants to remember. Friendship will be tested and new characters will arrive. Life goes on.

The series has been shot in a vitalistic tone that far from being sad, gives the viewer a sense of happiness, will to live and strength to overcome the problems that its characters possess.
 
The Red Band Society is a series for all audiences. The first Season is  completed (13x45min) the; second season (15x45') is now in-production and scheduled to be completed in the first quarter of 2013.
