Deadline is reporting that Kevin Bacon has signed on to star alongside Kathryn Hahn in I Love Dick, the new Amazon comedy pilot from Jill Soloway (Transparent).
I Love Dick is set in an academy community in Marfa, Texas and “centers on a struggling married couple, failing wife and independent filmmaker Chris (Hahn) and Sylvere, and their mutual obsession with an off-putting but charismatic professor, Dick (Bacon). Through that obsession, Chris goes on a journey of self-discovery and eventually transformative power.”
The pilot has been written by playwright Sarah Gubbins, and is adapted from Chris Kraus’ 1997 novel of the same name. Soloway is directing, as well as executive producing under her Topple Productions banner.
