Doubling down on the goose that laid the Golden Globes, Amazon is ordering another pilot from Jill Soloway, the creator of its critically beloved Transparent. The new half-hour comedy series is titled I Love Dick, based on Chris Kraus’ 1997 novel of the same name, about a married couple that becomes mutually obsessed with an enigmatic media professor (as one does).
Seemingly serving up the same blend of high-brow intellectualism, personal foibles, and deep-seated neuroses that have marked much of Soloway’s creative output—one of her first big jobs in the industry was working as a writer and producer for HBO’s Six Feet Under—I Love Dick is one of a few projects the Emmy-winning director is currently attached to. She’s also finishing up production on a webseries, The Skinny, with online filmmaker Jessie Kahnweiler, and was tapped recently to lead an MTV show about a pair of friends who bond over their shared experience of getting hit by lightning. She’s also still committed to production of her Jeffrey Tambor-starring flagship semi-comedy, which was renewed for a third season six months before the second even aired.
