You can put that raised eyebrow down right now….
New US drama I Love Dick begins on Amazon Prime in May.
Starring Kevin Bacon, Kathryn Hahn and Griffin Dunne, this is produced and directed by Jill Soloway (Transparent). It is based on the novel by author Chris Kraus.
Excluding a pilot outing, it launches globally on the same day.
Adapted from the cult classic I Love Dick referred to as “the most important book about men and women written in the last century” (Emily Gould, The Guardian) is set in a colourful intellectual community in Marfa, Texas. Chris (Kathryn Hahn, Transparent) and Sylvere (Griffin Dunne, Dallas Buyers Club), arrive in Marfa when Sylvere is offered a fellowship to finish a book he’s been writing on the Holocaust. When they meet Dick (Kevin Bacon, The Following), he taunts their imaginations and upends their preconceptions about love and monogamy. An exploration of the female gaze and how we tell stories about love and desire, I Love Dick charts the evolution of a marriage, the awakening of an artist and the deification of a writer named Dick. I Love Dick is executive produced by Jill Soloway (Transparent), Andrea Sperling (Transparent), and Sarah Gubbins (Ten Aker Wood). The pilot is directed by Soloway and written by Gubbins.
I Love Dick will be available with subtitles in English, French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese available at launch.
Friday May 12 on Amazon Prime.
