It’s official now. Hand of God is getting a full season.
Amazon Studios has given the go-ahead to its next two original series: drama “Hand of God,” starring Ron Perlman and Dana Delany, and Steven Soderbergh’s suburban comedy “Red Oaks.”
The two series, selected from Amazon’s third wave of pilots released in August, are slated to bow on Amazon Prime Instant Video in 2015. In addition, Amazon Studios has ordered additional scripts of Whit Stillman’s “The Cosmopolitans,” a half-hour comedy set in Paris, to further “explore the series.”
“We are excited to get working on full seasons of ‘Hand of God’ and ‘Red Oaks,’” said Amazon Studios VP Roy Price. “These shows come from some of the most talented creators in the business.” (…)
“Hand of God,” the TV debut of filmmaker Marc Forster (“Monster’s Ball,” “Finding Neverland,” “World War Z”). The dramatic thriller stars “Sons of Anarchy”’s Perlman and “Body of Proof”’s Delany (pictured, above). Show centers on Judge Harris (Perlman), a hard-living married man with a high-end call girl on the side, who suffers a mental breakdown and goes on a vigilante quest to find the rapist who tore his family apart. Forster, scribe Ben Watkins, Perlman, Brian Wilkins and Jeff King are exec producers, and Jillian Kugler is co-executive producer.
