Do not try to cry tears of joy when you hear this news. After The Hollywood Reporter A separate league TV series is in progress at Amazon. And that's not even the best part. The series is shared by Broad City 's Abbi Jacobson and Mozart in the Jungle & # 39; s Will Graham created. While Jacobson will not appear on screen, she knows she will serve as the executive producer and is reason enough to get excited about this project.
There are many ways to start a reboot or a movie. TV adaptation, this series seems to go the most sustainable way. Instead of trying to revive the magic of the nineties movie, Genna Davis' Dottie or Lori Petty's kit will not be on the show. However, will focus on the Rockford Peaches as they travel through a fast-changing America. As can be seen from THR the official description reads:
"A League of Their Own" is a half-hour comedy that incorporates the warmth, humor and DNA of classic film, and at the same time a contemporary twist The show will begin with the formation of the league in 1
The premise has just the right balance between nostalgia for the film and the promise to do its own thing, and it clearly has the potential to delve into a number of feminist themes that the film has just touched on, including the very real separation that took place during the era of the nation.
At this point in time, the Amazon series is still in its earliest stages of development before the streaming site decides whether to proceed with the project or not, a small writer's room is put together to put together several scripts It seems that ultimately the strength of writing will determine the fate of this adaptation.

This Sh Ow was more a straightforward sequel to the movie, which focused on Megan Cavanagh's Marla and Tracy Reiner's Betty "Spaghetti". The series was pulled down after three episodes due to lower ratings, but then Jacobson did not have as a writer on board.

For some children of the 90s a separate league was a defining part of their young feminist experience. The message is simple on the surface, sure – yes, women can play baseball – but the fact that it was based on a true story gave it an extra layer of meaning. Now, Amazon has the opportunity to develop an even more progressive version of the Rockford Peaches, spanning several seasons and at least partially written by Jacobson. While there is no guarantee that this is a homerun, this is a TV reboot that could be just what viewers need right now.
