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.

  1. No, no, no. You cannot let one of the characters sink low enough to have sex with her sister’s ex. That’s just tacky. And it doesn’t matter if they’re “in love”. Done in bad taste!
