Kevin Bacon is set to star in Amazon comedy pilot “I Love Dick.”
‘The Following’ vet will fill the title role in I Love Dick, Amazon’s comedy pilot from Transparent creator Jill Soloway.
Based on Chris Kraus’ 1997 novel of the same name, the potential series follows a struggling married couple in Texas and their mutual obsession with an off-putting but charismatic professor (played by Bacon).
Through that fixation, failing wife and independent filmmaker Chris (Transparent‘s Kathryn Hahn) goes on a journey of self-discovery and eventually transformative power. The role of Sylvere, Chris’ husband, has yet to be cast.
