It’s the summer of 1985 when RED OAKS — Amazon’s newest comedy series — begins. Craig Roberts stars as David Myers, who takes a job as an assistant tennis pro at the Red Oaks Country Club in suburban New Jersey. Still reeling from his father’s recent heart attack and conflicted about which major to declare in the fall, David is just trying to survive the summer.
At the club, he meets with a colorful cast of misfit co-workers (as is often the cast with comedies), as well as wealthy club members. There’s Skye, an alluring art student, and her father Getty (played by Paul Reiser), a corporate raider. Richard Kind stars as David’s father, Sam, in this coming-of-age new series.
The RED OAKS pilot is currently available on Amazon and season 1 will be released on October 9.
