Amazon Set To Make A Grand Slam With ‘A League Of Their Own’ TV Series

Published

on

A League of Their Own was certainly in its own class when it dropped in 1992. The beloved baseball film is best known for its line “There’s no crying in baseball!” One company is looking to make people cry tears of laughter very soon.

A Sitcom Of Their Own

Amazon is developing a half-hour sitcom based on the film. They’re not letting anyone take control of this project, either. Broad City co-creator Abbi Jacobson and Mozart in the Jungle producer Will Graham will both write and produce the new series.

Columbia Pictures

While there’s no word of casting just yet, they did make one major reveal. None of the characters from the original film will make an appearance.

Swing And A Miss

This isn’t the first time someone turned the film into a television series. In 1993, CBS released a half-hour sitcom for its spring lineup. Megan Cavanagh, Tracy Reiner, Jon Lovitz, and Garry Marshall reprised their roles for the show. Film director Penny Marshall and actor Tom Hanks both directed episodes.

Columbia Pictures

The show featured actor Sam McMurray taking over Hanks role as coach Jimmy Dugan. CBS canceled the series after three episodes. The sixth and final episode made was never aired. The short-lived series did gain one Emmy nomination for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Costume Design for a Series.

A Lasting Legacy

Last year, members of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League reunited for a game of softball. Their story was the basis behind the iconic film. “They are so happy to have their story told because history had forgotten about them,” actress Geena Davis said at the event. In 2016, the cast reunited for their own softball game.

Entertainment Tonight

In 2012, the film was selected by the National Film Registry for preservation. The movie earned two Golden Globes nominations for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture and Best Original Song.
