Escape quote in standard input?

Hello. I have a input script in python that gets data from db and puts them in stdin in the form field = "value". One field contains a json so I tried to escape quotes:
field = "{\"id\": \"a\"}"
but what I get in the field is "{\" losing the rest.
There is a way to escape quote in this case?
Thanks

Yes I did but is was non working until I found out to use auto_escaped instead of auto as KV_MODE.
Now it's working fine.
Thanks

Have you tried field = '{\"id\": \"a\"}'?
