Watch Trailer For Amazon’s 80s Coming of Age Comedy “Red Oaks”
Amazon’s latest comedy series will be Red Oaks from director David Gordon Green (Eastbound and Down) and writers Joe Gangemi and Gregory Jacobs following a young man played by Craig Roberts teaching tennis to old, rich folks at a country club, set in the 1980s.
From the looks of the trailer, especially with how Josh Meyers and Paul Reiser look, it’s really steeped in the 1980s.
All the episodes start streaming exclusively on Amazon on Fri. Oct. 9th.
China Will Be Doing Their Own Adaptation of “Mad About You”
(via The Hollywood Reporter)
After all these years, Mad About You is getting readapted. It’s not a U.S. reboot or something that the Internet has revived, but, rather, it’s a new Chinese adaptation of the 1990’s hit sitcom that starred Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt.
Many comedians currently joke about how China will take over the U.S. based on factors including how they outnumber us, the money that the U.S. owes them, etc.
However, readapting a hit sitcom from overseas is, these days, pretty American and considering that a classic example of an 90’s American multicam sitcom, Mad About You, this is probably a positive in overall U.S.-China relations.
