‘A League Of Their Own’ Sitcom Could Be Coming To Amazon
A deal is in the works to get Rockford's favorite movie, A League of Their Own, adapted to sitcom form.
Amazon has announced that they are partnering with Abbi Jacobson to create the series. Jacobsen is probably best known for creating and starring in the very popular (and very funny) Broadcity on Comedy Central.
What should you expect from the new series? Here's the official release from Amazon:
A League of Their Own is a half-hour comedy infusing the warmth, humor and DNA of the classic film, while taking a contemporary spin on the stories of the women surrounding the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. The show will begin with the formation of the league in 1943 and follows the Rockford Peaches, season to season as they struggle to keep the team alive through close games, injuries, late night bar crawls, sexual awakenings, not crying and road trips across a rapidly changing United States. The series dives deeper into the issues facing the country while following a ragtag team of women figuring themselves out while fighting to realize their dreams of playing professional baseball.
It looks like Rockford is going to be a central focus again. Hope this gets released sooner than later because I can't wait to see it.
