Wondering what to watch this Labor Day weekend? You might want to fire up your Amazon account and check out the five new pilots the online behemoth is rolling out. Unlike their competitors at other streaming services, the company is taking a unique approach to programming. Today they’re launching the new shows, but the catch is that user comments and ratings will determine which ones get ordered to series…and which don’t. Among the competing shows is “Red Oaks,” from director David Gordon Green.
Starring Craig Roberts (“Submarine“), Paul Reiser and Richard Kind, the show is an ’80s set comedy that follows a college age kid working at a country club during the summer. The first clip and a behind-the-scenes look promises what looks like an enjoyably sharp show, and fyi, Steven Soderbergh executive produced the pilot.
“Red Oaks” is now playing on Amazon.
