Octavia Spencer is a “Scary Bitch” — or at least her character in Fox’s upcoming “Red Band Society” apparently is.
The highly anticipated Fox dramedy, from Steven Spielberg‘s Amblin Television, follows a diverse group of teenagers who become unlikely allies and friends in the high school drama, set in the pediatric wing of a hospital. Griffin Gluck, Charlie Rowe, Rebecca Rittenhouse, Ciara Bravo and Zoe Levin also star in the series.
“Red Band Society” airs Wednesdays on Fox starting Sept. 17.
Spielberg and Margaret Nagle (“Boardwalk Empire”) executive produce, along with Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank (both of “The Americans”) and Sergio Aguero (“No Reservations”). Nagle penned the pilot, Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (“Glee”) directs.
