Kevin Bacon is the object of Kathryn Hahn's sexual fantasies in the trailer for Amazon's new original series "I Love Dick."
Executive produced by "Transparent" creator Jill Soloway, this ten-episode deadpan comedy-drama stars Hahn as an unfulfilled New York filmmaker named Chris, who travels to Marfa, Texas with her writer husband, Sylvere (played by Griffin Dunne). While they attend a motivational writing seminar, Chris meets Dick (Bacon), a pseudo-intellectual cowboy guru whose self-help philosophies motivate her to confront her sexually depressing marriage with her lackluster husband. Dick also inspires Chris to write a series of intensely personal letters in which she confesses her new psycho-sexual obsession with -- uh, well … y'know -- with Dick.
Based on the 1997 book of the same name by writer Chris Kraus, the Amazon series also stars Roberta Colindrez, Adhir Kalyan, India Menuez and Azita Ghanizada. Soloway directs the half-hour pilot, which is currently available to stream. The rest of the first season will officially be released on Friday, May 12th for Amazon Prime members.
From Jill Soloway, the two-time Emmy winning director and creator of Transparent, comes I Love Dick, which tells the story of a struggling married couple (played by Kathryn Hahn and Griffin Dunne) who move to Marfa to study with an enigmatic professor, Dick (Kevin Bacon). As the couple become drawn to Dick, their lives are turned upside down with unintended, but exciting consequences.
