Really, Ep. 1.01: “Pilot” is funny, but fails at drama

2 September 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Jay Chandrasekhar, Sarah Chalke

Really, Season 1, Episode 1: “Pilot”

Written by Jay Chandrasekhar

Directed by Jay Chandrasekhar

Released August 28, 2014 by Amazon

While the Broken Lizard comedy troupe were behind four movies from 1996 to 2006, recent years have seen the group members branching out individually. One particularly prominent member of the group has been Jay Chandrasekhar, who has directed episodes of shows such as Happy Endings, Chuck, and Community. His newest foray into television is the pilot for Really, a show that takes a look at couples and people in various stages of relationships. Looking for a series greenlight, Amazon and the creators have released the pilot online for voting, and it paints the picture of a show that could either be a success or a failure, depending on whether it chooses to focus on its comedic elements or its dramatic ones.

Time to Help Choose the Next Series: 5 New Pilots Premiere August 28th

11 August 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | Hollywonk | See recent Hollywonk news »

Big news today: We’re excited to announce Amazon Studios’ third pilot season, beginning August 28th and featuring three half hour comedies The Cosmopolitans, Really and Red Oaks, and two hour-long dramatic thrillers Hand of God and Hysteria.  For one month, it will be up to you to watch, rate and comment – ultimately helping us decide which of them get the greenlight.

“There is something for everyone in this season,” says Roy Price, Director of Amazon Studios.  The glamorous life of modern day expats in Paris. The hijinks of a summer job at a country club in 1980s New Jersey. The visions of a vigilante judge who appears to be channeling God.  The complexities of marriage and friendship among a circle of friends in suburban Chicago.  And the mysteries behind a psycho-physiological illness spreading through a small town in Texas. 

You can help choose which of these stories should get “picked up” to become shows. »
