Amazon Orders The Tick, I Love Dick and Jean-Claude Van Johnson to Series

The Tick Amazon Pilot

Amazon on Tuesday ordered to series three of its latest pilots: Jill Soloway’s I Love Dick, its remake of The Tick and Jean-Claude Van Johnson.

The Tick, starring Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Peter Serafinowicz, follows a strange blue superhero who is called to action when an underdog accountant (Vinyl‘s Griffin Newman) with zero powers comes to realize his city is owned by a global super villain long-thought dead.

I Love Dick, based on the best-selling book, follows a married couple (Transparent‘s Kathryn Hahn and House of Lies‘ Griffin Dunne) as their preconceptions about love and monogamy are challenged by an enigmatic writer (played by The Following‘s Kevin Bacon).

Last but not least, Jean-Claude Van Johnson stars Jean-Claude Van Damme as a retired action film star (heh!) who enters the covert contractor game. Kat Foster (Your Family or Mine), Moises Arias (The Middle) and Phylicia Rashad (Creed) also star.

All three of the aforementioned programs debuted as part of Amazon’s latest “pilot season” on Aug. 19, meaning each pilot is already available to Prime subscribers. Full-length seasons are expected to drop in 2017.
