Amazon_Studios1.jpg.644x300_q100Kathryn Hahn, who is recurring on Jill Soloway’s acclaimed Amazon comedy series Transparent, has been tapped as the female lead in Soloway’s followup project for Amazon — comedy pilot I Love Dick.

IloveDickWritten by playwright Sarah Gubbins based on Chris Kraus’ 1997 novel and directed by Soloway, I Love Dick is set in a colorful academic community in Marfa, Texas. It centers on a struggling married couple, failing wife and independent filmmaker Chris (Hahn) and Sylvere, and their mutual obsession with an off-putting but charismatic professor, Dick. Through that obsession, Chris goes on a journey of self-discovery and eventually transformative power. Told in Rashomon-style shifts of POV, I Love Dick charts the unraveling of a marriage, the awakening of an artist and the reluctant deification of a man named Dick.

Hahn plays Rabbi Raquel Fein on Transparent, recently sharing a SAG Awards ensemble nomination with the rest of the series’ cast. The actress, who also recurred on NBC’s Parks & Recreation, is repped by Gersh, Lighthouse Management and attorney James Adams.

I Love Dick is produced by Soloway and Andrea Sperling’s newly formed Topple Productions under the company’s overall deal with Amazon Studios. Soloway and Sperling executive produce, with Gubbins co-executive producing.
