Amazon Adds Comedy From 'Super Troopers' Director TheWrap

Amazon announced today that it will debut a new comedy created by and starring the director of "Super Troopers." TheWrap.com reports that the project from Jay Chandrasekhar will roll out as part of the online streaming service's third pilot season.

The project, "Really," is a half-hour dramatic comedy.

"Selma Blair, Sarah Chalke, Travis Schuldt and Lindsay Sloane star in the series, described as an extremely honest behind-the-curtain look at the psychological and emotional complexities of marriage, as well as the charged dynamics of a tight-knit group of friends," the story reports. "Chandrasekhar wrote and directed the pilot, which joins 'The Cosmopolitans' and 'Hand of God' as options that Amazon will once again present to customers and use their feedback to determine what shows get a full series order."

In a statement, Roy Price, director of Amazon Studios, said: “At Amazon Studios, we're always looking for shows with distinctive voices and captivating characters that our customers won't see anywhere else on TV. From the moment we read the script we knew that 'Really' is one of those shows, and we think Amazon customers will really (pun intended) enjoy viewing the pilot later this year.”
