Amazon to Debut New Half-Hour Dramatic Comedy "Really" in Third Pilot Season

From Main Street Films, Really is created, written and directed by Jay Chandrasekhar (Super Troopers), and stars Chandrasekhar, Sarah Chalke (Scrubs), Selma Blair (Anger Management), Travis Schuldt (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia) and Lindsay Sloane (Psych)

Really joins The Cosmopolitans and Hand of God for Amazon's highly-anticipated third pilot season, which will debut later this year on Amazon Instant Video

SEATTLE -- Jun. 20, 2014 -- (NASDAQ: AMZN) - Amazon Studios today announced it will debut the half-hour dramatic comedy pilot Really from Jay Chandrasekhar (Super Troopers), Main Street Films' Craig Chang and Harrison Kordestani, and Executive Producer Jamie Tarses (Happy Endings) as part of its third pilot season debuting later this year on Amazon Instant Video. Customers will once again be invited to watch and provide feedback on the shows they want to see turned into full series, which will then become available on Prime Instant Video. Written, created and directed by Chandrasekhar, Really is a funny, extremely honest behind-the-curtain look at the psychological and emotional complexities of marriage, and the charged dynamics of a tight-knit group of friends.

"At Amazon Studios, we're always looking for shows with distinctive voices and captivating characters that our customers won't see anywhere else on TV," said Roy Price, Director of Amazon Studios. "From the moment we read the script we knew that Really is one of those shows, and we think Amazon customers will really (pun intended) enjoy viewing the pilot later this year."

"One of the most accomplished comedy writer/directors around, Jay's script stays true to the humor that his fans know and love him for and Amazon as the distribution platform will no doubt allow a whole new audience to be introduced to him," said Main Street Films' Chairman Craig Chang.

"Really is meant to be a sophisticated, funny, strikingly honest cable comedy for adults," said Jay Chandrasekhar. "We're going to talk honestly about subjects including sex, alcohol, addiction, drugs, race and politics. Good fun."

Really 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.
