Amazon Just Ordered ‘A League Of Their Own’ Reboot TV Series
Get ready Rockford, for a fresh look at Penny Marshall's 1992 film. The new approach will be in the form of an hourlong series.
Amazon has tapped co-creators, Abbi Jacobson (Broad City), who also stars and Will Graham (Mozart in the Jungle) and Sony Pictures TV, for a new look at the story of our very own Rockford Peaches and the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League
Where this hourlong TV series will differ from Penny Marshall's film is time spent taking a deeper look at race and sexuality, including more of the women's time off the field.
"Will and Abbi have taken a classic movie, reimagining it for a new generation with new characters and their own fresh, modern vision on a timeless story of big dreams, friendship, love, and, of course, baseball." Vernon Sanders, Co-Head of Television at Amazon Studios
Now, let's hope Hollywood can get back to work soon and put this series together, because we need to plan a premier party here in the 815.
