Following the release of the pilot episode for “Red Oaks” last August and after subscribers have chosen which shows should move forward from Amazon’s third batch of first episode offerings, the streaming services has officially confirmed that the comedy will be pushing forward for a full season. Read on for the rest of the story.
Amazon has announced that “Red Oaks” has been given a full season order. The show, whose pilot recap we’ve covered here, is a coming-off-age series created by Craig Roberts with Steven Soderbergh as executive producer. It’s story is about a young man named David Myers who spends summer working as a tennis pro assistant at the Red Oaks Country Club, while figuring out what he wants to do for the rest of his life. The series is set in the mid-80s and also stars Richard Kind, Jennifer Grey, Paul Reiser and Oliver Cooper.
Apart from “Red Oaks,” Amazon Prime has also confirmed the religious drama series, “Hand of God,” for a full season pick up. The show stars Ron Perlman as a corrupt judge who suddenly has a change of heart following a vision from “God.”
It is not yet known, however, when these two shows will finally roll out its full season on the streaming site.
“These shows come from some of the most talented creators in the business. Customers loved the pilot episodes, and we can’t wait to hear what they think of the entire series,” said Roy Price, Amazon’s vice president, in a statement published on The Hollywood Reporter.
The streaming site has also given additional script orders to “The Cosmopolitans,” which is a first for Amazon Prime as it usually airs pilots first and then decide to give a full season order, or not proceed with the series completely.
The other two pilots from this batch that are not yet confirmed to be moving forward are the drama thriller “Hysteria” and the relationship comedy “Really.”
And that’s the latest on Amazon Prime’s third pilot batch, with “Red Oaks” and “Hand of God” moving forward for a full season. You must subscribe to Amazon to be able to watch this.
