Amazon Studios has picked two original pilots to series. Drama “Hand of God” and comedy “Red Oaks” are expected to premiere on the streaming site in 2015.
“Hand of God” stars Ron Perlman as the morally corrupt Judge Pernell Harris who believes God is speaking to him and guiding him on a path of vigilante justice. Dana Delany plays his wife. “World War Z’s” Marc Foster directed the pilot.
Amazon picked up six other series earlier this year, including Jill Soloway’s “Transparent” that premiered in September. “Mozart in the Jungle,” “Bosch” and “The After” along with children series “Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street” and Wishenpoof!” were also picked up to full series.
The studios’ first original series, “Alpha House,” created by Garry Trudeau and starring John Goodman, is scheduled to premiere its second season on Oct. 24.
