It's time to dust off the Rockford Peaches uniform you wore for Halloween that one year, because an A League of Their Own is coming to series.
The 1992 Penny Marshall film is being rebooted as a TV series on Amazon Prime Video. The hour-long episodes will tell the story of a group of women who played in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. The show will explore the dreams, relationships, friendships, and sacrifices that come along with leaving their families to play professional baseball. It'll also touch on sexuality and race.
As much as we love and miss Dottie Hinson, Kit Keller, Mae Mordabito, Doris Murphy, Evelyn Gardner, Jimmy Dugan, and Marla Hooch, the show will introduce an entirely new cast of characters.
The series is co-created and executive produced by Broad City's Abbi Jacobson and Will Graham, starring Jacobson, Chante Adams, D'Arcy Carden, Gbemisola Ikumelo, Kelly McCormack, Roberta Colindrez, and Priscilla Delgado, with recurring guest stars Molly Ephraim, Kate Berlant, and Melanie Field.
"There's no crying in baseball, or at Prime Video," said Vernon Sanders, co-head of television for Amazon Studios. "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. We're so excited to partner with Sony to bring this emotional, exciting new series to our Prime Video customers around the world."
