An upcoming series on Fox is adding a veteran to the writers' room. The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed reports that the hospital drama "Red Band Society" is bringing in Rina Mimoun, fresh off a stint as a writer and executive producer on "Mistresses."
"Mimoun will serve in the same capacity and work alongside series creator Margaret Nagle," the story reports.
THR reports: "'Red Band Society,' from ABC Studios, focuses on the daily lives of a group of teenagers living in a hospital who become unlikely friends. The depth of the unexpected friendships allows them to survive the challenges of growing up under such intense circumstances. Octavia Spencer stars as a snarky yet caring nurse alongside 'hot doc' Dave Annable."
For Mimoun the move is part of an overall deal with ABC Studios.
"Should 'Mistresses' earn a third season, she would resume work on that series as well," THR notes. "She brings years of experience — on series including 'Hart of Dixie,' 'Eastwick,' 'Privileged,' 'Gilmore GIrls,' 'Jack & Jill' and more — to the series overseen by first-year showrunner Nagle."
"Red Band Society" is set to premiere Sept. 17 on Fox.
