What is A League of Their Own about?

According to reports, quickly after filming the pilot Amazon called for a series order for its reboot of A League of Their Own.

Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson and Will Graham created the hourlong series, which is described as a reboot of the original feature film about the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. The series will star Abbi Jacobson and will expand the plot to explore race and sexuality with a new ensemble of women carving their own paths in the baseball league.

“Twenty-eight years ago, Penny Marshall told us a story about women playing professional baseball that up until then had been largely overlooked. We grew up obsessed with the film, like everyone else. Three years ago, we approached Sony with the idea of telling a new, still overlooked set of those stories. With the help of an enormously talented team of collaborators, an amazing cast, and the devoted support of Amazon to this project, we feel beyond lucky and excited to get to bring these characters to life,” Graham and Jacobson said in a joint statement Thursday. “It took grit, fire, authenticity, wild imagination and a crackling sense of humor for these players to achieve their dreams. We’re hoping to bring audiences a story with all of those qualities.”

“There’s no crying in baseball, or at Prime Video,” said Vernon Sanders, co-head of television at Amazon. “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.”

The series was first put into development in March 2018 and is produced by Sony Pictures Television, whose Columbia Pictures produced the movie and the real-wold AAGPBL was formed when World War II threatened to shut down the Major League Baseball organization. The movie centered around two sisters Dottie (Geena Davis) and Kit (Lori Petty), as they were recruited to join the AAGPBL and wound up playing for the Rockford Peaches (before a trade that would see them face off in the World Series). Tom Hanks played the team manager Jimmy Dugan. The cast also included Madonna, Rosie O’Donnell, Megan Cavanagh and David Strathairn, who played Ira Lowenstein.
