Soloway is the creator and executive producer of Transparent, the Amazon comedy series that helped made the streaming service known for original programming. In addition, Soloway received an Emmy for directing the episode “Best New Girl.” She is also working hard on another Amazon comedy at the moment called I Love Dick. The series stars Kathryn Hahn and Kevin Bacon. If that’s not enough, Soloway and Amazon Studios are also developing a film titled Ten Aker Wood which is about a woman who leaves her rocky marriage behind to began a new life in Northern California to work on a marijuana farm.
