Red Band Society, Our Favorite New Show, Is Premiering Its First Episode in the Best Way

Red Band Society FOX

We all watch a ridiculous amount of TV and we know it. Binge-watchers, unite!

But there's rarely a chance that we can all use our TV obsessions for good. Thanks to Fox and the new fall series Red Band Society (which you are going to fall in love with, we promise), we have a chance to change that, and it's pretty amazing what the network has pledged to, now you can watch the first episode early!

E! News can reveal that starting today and continuing through Friday, Aug. 22, every time someone shares Red Band Society videos, photos, GIFs and more from on social media, Fox will donate $1 to charity. The network will even donate up to $100,000 total!

And all you have to do is share something on Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr? Seriously, what are you waiting for?!

All the money raised during the "Red Band Society: Banding Together For Good" campaign will support five charities, including Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Ryan Seacrest Foundation, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Teen Cancer America and Children's Hospital Los Angeles. And after you watch Red Band Society when it premieres this fall, you'll be even happier about all the money raised, because the kids on the show that deal with facing life-threatening illnesses while growing up and bonding in the hospital are so heartbreaking and sweet that it hurts. Yeah, prepare for all of the tears, people.

But the amazing promotion doesn't just end there. If a fan logs in via Facebook, he/she also will receive one point toward a place on the leaderboard, and every time a friend clicks on the shared link, that fan will get one more point and $1 more goes to charity!

And here's the best part: if everyone does their part right away and the $100,000 donation goal is reached by Aug. 22, fans will get the opportunity to watch the first episode early for 100 hours beginning on Aug. 22! You'll be able to watch the episode on FOX On Demand for customers of AT&T U-verse, Bright House Networks, Cablevision, Charter, Cox, Mediacom, Suddenlink, Time Warner Cable, Verizon FiOS, XFINITY and many more cable providers, as well as online at, and FOX NOW. So not only are you raising money for a good cause, but you also get to watch your new favorite show early? It's win-win!

So go on, start sharing! (And we're sharing, too, as all of the photos above are exclusive new pics from the highly anticipated new series, starring Octavia Spencer and Dave Annable!)

Red Band Society premieres on Wednesday, Sept. 17 at 9 p.m. on Fox.
