A League of Their Own - TV Series Based on Movie in Development at Amazon

Share on Reddit

The retail giant/streaming service is developing a TV series based on Penny Marshall's Tom Hanks and Geena Davis feature A League of Their Own. Mozart in the Jungle's Will Graham and Broad City's Abbi Jacobson will co-write what is described less as a traditional reboot and more as a modern look at the story. The project is being envisioned as a half-hour comedy series. For now, the Amazon take is in development, with a mini-writers' room set to open and deliver scripts before Amazon makes a decision. Jacobson will not have an on-screen role. Amazon and Sony declined comment as Jacobson's deal is not done yet.

Graham's Amazon Studios-based Field Trip Productions topper Hailey Wierengo will also exec produce alongside Graham and Jacobson. Amazon's modern take will not feature either Geena Davis' Dottie or her kid sister Kit (Lori Petty), who both served as the central characters in the 1992 movie. Here's the official logline: "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."
