Amazon Studios today announced it has added the Steven Soderbergh (Behind the Candelabra) produced and David Gordon Green (Eastbound & Down) directed comedy Red Oaks to its third pilot season, which will debut later this year on Amazon Instant Video.Red Oaks is the final show to join Amazon’s highly-anticipated third pilot season which includes The Cosmopolitans, Hand of God, Hysteria, and Really. Customers will once again be invited to watch and provide feedback on the shows they want to see turned into full series, which will then become available on Prime Instant Video.
