Deadline is reporting that Amazon has given a pilot order to I Love Dick, a half-hour comedy from executive producer Jill Soloway, creator of the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning Transparent starring Jeffrey Tambor.
Based on Chris Kraus’ novel and adapted by playwright Sarah Gubbins, the pilot “is set in a colorful academic community in Marfa, Texas. It centers on a struggling married couple, Chris and Sylvere, and their mutual obsession with an off-putting but charismatic professor, Dick. Told in Rashomon-style shifts of POV, I Love Dick charts the unraveling of a marriage, the awakening of an artist and the reluctant deification of a man named Dick.”
I Love Dick is the third project to get a pilot order from Amazon as of late after the dramas The Last Tycoon and The Interestings.
