Emmy-winning showrunner to helm indie feature for streaming studio
Amazon is staying in business with Jill Soloway, and has set the “Transparent” creator and showrunner to direct “Ten Aker Wood.”
The film is described as a coming-of-age story about a woman who moves to a pot farm in North Carolina and falls in with a gang of outlaw bikers.
Soloway is co-writing the film with Sarah Gubbins. Andrea Sperling and Robin Ruzan will produce.
“Transparent” recently aired its second season, though there’s no firm announcement of a Season 3 yet.
The series stars Jeffrey Tambor as a transgender woman from a large and dysfunctional California family who continues to adjust to her new life.
Soloway is also working on a new pilot for Amazon, a half hour comedy called “I Love Dick.” She is represented by UTA.
