With the “Red Ribbon Club”, those responsible for the private radio station Vox test a drama series of their own production for the first time. Now a new image has been released and the start date for Fall 2015 has been announced.
Vox ventures into unknown terrain. For the first time in its history, the private broadcaster, which belongs to the RTL Group, has commissioned an internal series with “Club der Roten Bänder”, which will be implemented by Bantry Bay Productions GmbH & Co. KG. It has now been announced that the format, which will shoot in Monheim, Cologne and the surrounding area until October 2015, will celebrate its television premiere on November 9, 2015. At the same time, Vox has also released a new image for the series, showing to young lead actors Tim Oliver Schultz, Luise Befort, Timur Bartels, Ivo Kortlang, Nick Julius Schuck and Damian Hardung (left to right):
The young stars play six permanent patients in a hospital. Because they have to spend a lot of time there due to their various chronic ailments, they are denied many things in life that others their own age take for granted. For this reason, they meet and experience numerous adventures in their everyday, often gloomy surroundings. Soon a very special friendship develops between completely different teenagers.
“Club de los Lazos Rojos” is based on the real experiences of the Spanish Albert Espinosa, who suffered from cancer in his youth, and who reflected it in his novel “Secrets of happiness in the yellow world” (OT: “The yellow world”) . The book has already been successfully adapted for Spanish television in the form of the television series “Polseres Vermelles”. Germany is just one of many countries that are following suit with a similar television project.
The first season of the “Red Ribbons Club” will consist of ten episodes, which will be broadcast on Mondays from November 9, 2015 in double packs starting at 8:15 p.m. This moves production to the broadcast space of the third season of the US series “Chicago Fire”, which will begin on September 14, 2015.
