While Amazon has had a successful year with its original programming, including acclaimed returning series “Transparent” and the debuts of “One Mississippi” and “Fleabag,” there’s one returning series that will send its audience back to the hazy summer days of the 1980s. The half-hour comedy-drama “Red Oaks” follows David Meyers (Craig Roberts), an aspiring filmmaker and NYU undergraduate who spends his summers working as a tennis pro at the prestigious Red Oaks Country Club. At the end of last season, his parents (Jennifer Grey and Richard Kind) are separating, he broke up with his girlfriend Karen (Gage Golightly), and has fallen for Skye (Alexandra Socha), the daughter of Getty (Paul Reiser), the country club’s president. Watch the trailer for the second season below.
The series is co-created and executive produced by Gregory Jacobs (“Magic Mike XXL”) and Joe Gangemi (“Blackway”). It’s also executive produced by Steven Soderbergh (“Out of Sight”) and David Gordon Green (“George Washington”), who directed the first two episodes of the debut season. “Red Oaks'” first season also featured the work from acclaimed directors like Hal Hartley (“Henry Fool”), Amy Heckerling (“Clueless”), Andrew Fleming (“Dick”), and Nisha Ganatra (“Transparent”).
The second season of “Red Oaks” will premiere on November 11th exclusively on Amazon.
