Amazon greenlights full seasons for Hand of God, Red Oaks
| 04 October 2014
Amazon has announced that two more original pilots will return to Prime Instant Video next year as full series: dramatic thriller Hand of God starring Ron Perlman, along with Steven Soderbergh's coming-of-age comedy Red Oaks.
"We are excited to get working on full seasons of Hand of God and Red Oaks," said Roy Price, vice president of Amazon Studios. "These shows come from some of the most talented creators in the business. Customers loved the pilot episodes and we can't wait to hear what they think of the entire series."
As part of its development process, Amazon gives customers an opportunity to provide feedback on which pilots they want turned into series on Prime Instant Video. During pilot season, any Amazon customer in the US and UK can watch, rate and comment on the pilots. At the end of pilot season, that feedback helps determine the shows that become an Amazon Original Series.
This past February, Amazon customers posted comments during the second pilot season, which helped Amazon decide to greenlight six series--Transparent, Mozart in the Jungle, Bosch and The After, and kids series Gortimer Gibbon's Life on Normal Street and Wishenpoof!
Amazon Original series are available to Prime members through the Amazon Instant Video app on Amazon Fire TV, Fire tablets, Fire phone, iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Roku, Xbox, PlayStation, Wii, as well as other connected devices such as smart TVs. inShare0
