Amazon has confirmed it has ordered a pilot episode of the Steven Soderbergh-produced comedy series “Red Oaks”. David Gordon Green (“Pineapple Express,” “Joe”) will direct.
Penned by Gregory Jacobs (“The Knick”) and Joe Gangemi (“Eliza Graves”), Craig Roberts (“Submarine”) plays an assistant tennis pro at the Red Oaks Country Club in suburban New Jersey in 1985.
Paul Reiser (“Aliens”), Richard Kind (“Luck”), Jennifer Grey (“Dirty Dancing”) and Oliver Cooper (“Californication”) also star. The project will be one of several pilots that make up Amazon’s third pilot season.
Customers will watch and give feedback on it – after that it will be determined whether to pick it up to series. Other pilots it will compete with include the Whit Stillman-produced “The Cosmopolitans,” Marc Forster-produced “Hand of God,” the Shaun Cassidy-produced “Hysteria,” and the Sarah Chalke comedy”Really.”
