For one month, Amazon customers will be able to watch, rate and comment on all of Amazon’s new pilots – ultimately helping Amazon decide which of their new comedy and drama pilots get the greenlight.
You can help choose which of these stories should get “picked up” to become shows. As part of Amazon’s unique development process, Amazon Studios relies on feedback from viewers, which helps determine the shows that become an Amazon Original Series. In April, Amazon customers posted tens of thousands of comments during the second pilot season, which helped green light six soon-to-launch series, including Transparent and Mozart in the Jungle.
Written, directed and starring Jay Chandrasekhar, Really is a funny, extremely, honest behind-the-curtain look at the complexities of marriage and the charged dynamics of a tight-knit group of friends. The show is about four hard-charging suburban Chicago couples trying to grasp on-to their dwindling youth. At the center are the happily but messily married couple “Jed,” played by Chandrasekhar, and “Lori,” played by Sarah Chalke. When Jed is faced with the choice of keeping his pal’s secret or destroying his friend group, he winds up digging himself into a very deep hole. Really explores marriage, friendship and the stifling peculiarities of suburban Chicago life. The pilot also stars Selma Blair, Travis Schuldt, Hayes MacArthur, Collette Wolfe, Luka Jones, Lindsay Sloane and Rob Delaney. Really comes from Main Street Films’ Craig Chang and Harrison Kordestani, and Executive Producer Jamie Tarses (Happy Endings).
