Red Band Society
Fox’s hospital drama series “Red Band Society” is officially dead. Since Fox’s cancellation of the series, the show’s producers Amblin TV and ABC Studios have been trying to shop around the series to see if anyone else were interested in picking it up.
Fox reportedly offered the series a summer run with a reduced license fee, an economic model the show can’t sustain, and so that won’t be happening. They then tried shopping the show to other outlets but couldn’t find it a new home. The four final unaired episodes will run on January 31st and February 7th. [Source: Deadline]
