Following their successful pilot runs last month, Amazon Studios that it has ordered all three of its new comedy pilots to series – the reboot of “The Tick,” the Van Damme-led “Jean-Claude Van Johnson,” and the Kevin Bacon & Jill Soloway collaboration “I Love Dick”.
‘Dick’ follows a couple’s marital struggles in an artistic and academic community in Texas. ‘Van Johnson’ follows Jean-Claude Van Damme whose washed up actor status is a cover for his real job as the most dangerous undercover private contractor in the world. ‘Tick’ is a revival of the offbeat superhero based on the comic.
All three will debut as original series on the service in 2017 in the U.S., U.K., Germany, Austria and Japan. No word on the episodes count of each, but the pilots are still available to watch on the service now.
