Kevin Bacon is returning to television as “The Following” star is in final negotiations to join “Transparent” creator Jill Soloway’s new comedy pilot “I Love Dick” on Amazon.
Soloway will direct from a script by Sarah Gubbins based on Chris Kraus’ 1997 novel. The comedy follows a struggling married couple Chris (Kathryn Hahn) and Sylvere in a colorful academic community in Texas, and their mutual obsession with an off-putting but charismatic “cowboy intellectual” professor named Dick (Bacon).
The series will be told “Rashomon”-style with numerous point-of-view shifts as it charts the unraveling of a marriage, the awakening of an artist and the reluctant deification of a man named Dick. Soloway and Andrea Sperling will executive produce.
