I love Tick.

One of Amazon's most anticipated pilots has gotten the green light

The streaming platform's adaptation of The Tick is getting a full season, after testing out the pilot on Amazon's audience last month. There was little doubt the series, which stars Peter Serafinowicz as the titular superhero, would get picked up; we're living in a supersaturated era of superhero content, and though the last live-action version of The Tick didn't last long on Fox, it developed a devoted following. 

Jean-Claude Van Johnson and Jill Soloway's I Love Dick also got the go-ahead. All three will debut in 2017. And Amazon is getting in on the pot comedy trend: It just gave the green light to the pilot for Budding Prospects, starring Will Sasso.
