25 Most Anticipated TV Shows of 2017

From superhero sitcoms to dystopia-lit adaptations, new 'Star Trek' to new 'Twin Peaks' – here's what you'll be watching this year

'I Love Dick'

Amazon, May 12
The most promising (and arguably ambitious) of last year's Amazon pilots, Jill "Transparent" Soloway's take on Chris Kraus' semi-autobiographical, semi-experimental novel puts the mighty Kathryn Hahn in the middle of a love triangle between with her cultural wonk/writer husband (Griffin Dunne) and the cowboy intellectual (Kevin Bacon) who runs an author's seminar in Marfa, Texas. Even if you're not a fan of the justly celebrated book, you'll dig the surgical precision of the satire; Soloway's trademark tragicomic character-study chops, on full display here; Hahn and Dunne's brittle chemistry; and, best of all, a white-hot Bacon playing a combination of Cormac McCarthy, Norman Mailer and every other swinging you-know-what male writer of the 20th century. You'll be hearing a lot about this one. DF
