Amazon Doubles Down on Jill Soloway and Orders “I Love Dick” Pilot

(via Deadline)

This is a good, common sense move by Amazon Studios.

Jill Soloway is responsible for a good percentage of Amazon’s critical acclaim from her series Transparent. So, it only stands to reason that the online giant would get her working on another project.

This time around, Soloway is adapting a 90s novel called I Love Dick by Chris Kraus, which follows a marriage unraveling, the birth of an artist, and an intriguing professor with the name Dick in the backdrop of Marfa, Texas.

It would seem that TV now has legitimate auteurs and they have more freedom than ever to do what they want because of a certain track record.
