Amazon is embracing the binge-watching model, rolling out a full season of the new comedy “Red Oaks” on Friday, Oct. 9. Ten episodes will become available on that date on Amazon Prime in the U.S. and other countries.
“Created by Gregory Jacobs (‘Magic Mike XXL,’ ‘The Knick’) and Joe Gangemi (‘Eliza Graves’), ‘Red Oaks’ is ‘The Graduate’ meets ‘Caddyshack’ — a half-hour coming-of-age dramedy set in suburban New Jersey in 1985,” Amazon says in its announcement.
The release adds: “Craig Roberts (‘Submarine’) stars as David Meyers, an NYU student, and a young man at a crossroads — conflicted about his major, confused about his relationship with his high school sweetheart, and unsure what to make of his parents’ recent confession that they may never have really loved each other. Hired as an assistant tennis pro at Red Oaks Country Club, David finds himself the recipient of unsolicited life advice from a colorful group of co-workers and wealthy club members including an alluring art student named Skye, played by Alexandra Socha, her corporate raider father Getty, played by Paul Reiser (‘Mad About You’), and tennis-pro Nash, played by Ennis Esmer.”
The series also stars Jennifer Grey (‘Dirty Dancing’) and Richard Kind (‘Luck’) as David’s parents, Sam and Judy Meyers, Oliver Cooper (‘Californication’) as Wheeler, Gage Golightly as Karen and Josh Meyers as Barry.
David Gordon Green (‘Pineapple Express,’ ‘Eastbound and Down’) and Oscar winner Steven Soderbergh (‘Behind the Candelabra,’ ‘Traffic,’ ‘Ocean’s Eleven’) join Jacobs and Gangemi as executive producers.
