Jill Soloway Extends Overall Deal with Amazon Studios
Amazon Studios is staying in business with Jill Soloway.
The Transparent and I Love Dick creator has re-upped her overall deal with the streaming service. The lucrative three-year extension will begin June 2018 when the showrunner's existing deal with Amazon ends.
Soloway made Amazon a part of the conversation with her critically acclaimed transgender dramedy starring Jeffrey Tambor, which scored the streamer its first Golden Globes and Emmy awards.
Under the new pact, Soloway will continue to serve as the showrunner on Transparent — which is in its fourth season — and the Kevin Bacon-Kathryn Hahn comedy I Love Dick, which debuts on May 12. She'll also develop new projects via her Topple production company, which she runs with Andrea Sperling.
Soloway, who formerly worked on Six Feet Under, first inked an overall deal with Amazon in June 2015.
