Here’s the pitch: Amazon is officially committing to a series adaptation of the 1992 Penny Marshall film A League of Their Own.
According to Variety, the hour-long series will tell the story of an entire generation of women who dreamed of playing baseball. The show will also explore race and sexuality, following the journey of a whole new ensemble of characters as they carve their own paths towards the field, both in the League and outside of it.
The series is co-created and executive produced by Broad City alum Abbi Jacobson and Will Graham, with Jacobson also starring.
The series stars Jacobson and Chanté Adams, alongside D’Arcy Carden, Gbemisola Ikumelo, Kelly McCormack, Roberta Colindrez, and Priscilla Delgado, with recurring guest stars Molly Ephraim, Kate Berlant and Melanie Field.
Sony Pictures Television will produce the show alongside Amazon Studios and in conjunction with Field Trip Productions.
