Writer/Director/Producer Jill Soloway is an activist and artist whose groundbreaking Amazon series TRANSPARENT burst into the cultural consciousness in 2014. Entering the fourth season this year, its artful exploration of identity, love, sex, God and boundaries seen through the lives of a complicated American family has garnered 21 Emmy nominations, eight Emmy awards and two Golden Globes.
On May 12, 2017, Soloway will premiere her new Amazon series, I LOVE DICK, which she co-created and directs. Adapted from Chris Kraus’ critically acclaimed novel of the same name, the show tells the story of a struggling married couple and their obsession with a charismatic artist.
Soloway co-founded the online channel WIFEY.TV and in 2015 established TOPPLE, a media brand, production company and movement that seeks to upend the patriarchy by shifting the gaze and inspiring protagonism for women, queer people, people of color and their allies. In 2018, Soloway will debut her untitled memoir from Crown Books.
