Transparent creator Jill Soloway has a new Amazon show set to debut in a few months. The streaming network announced today that Soloway’s series I Love Dick will first premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on Monday followed by its Amazon debut on Friday, May 12th. Ordered to series back in September, the series is based on the 1997 novel by Chris Kraus and stars Kathryn Hahn, Kevin Bacon, and Griffin Dunne. Here’s the logline:
Adapted from Chris Kraus’ 1997 cult classic, combining feminist art criticism, memoir, and epistolary novel, I Love Dick is a bold new series from the team that brought you Transparent. Chris (Kathryn Hahn) is a frustrated New York filmmaker who finds herself marooned in Marfa, Texas, where her academic husband, Sylvère (Griffin Dunne), has a writing residency. Amid the dusty silence, art snobs, and tumbleweeds, she meets renowned scholar Dick (Kevin Bacon). An infuriating and beguiling exchange with this enigmatic, macho character unleashes in her a dramatic awakening.
