via press note:
On Friday October 9th the first season of Amazon’s next original comedy series Red Oaks will debut—all 10 episodes will be available for Prime members in US, UK, Germany and Austria to watch via the Amazon Video app for TVs, connected devices or mobile devices or online here. Red Oaks will also be available in Japan later this year.
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. 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 coworkers 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. Red Oaks 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.
Sundance award-winner David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express, Eastbound and Down) and Academy Award winner Steven Soderbergh (Behind the Candelabra, Traffic, Ocean’s Eleven) join Jacobs and Gangemi as Executive Producers. The series was directed by David Gordon Green, Andrew Fleming, Hal Hartley, Nisha Ganatra and Amy Heckerling.
