Superb Full Trailer for Abbi Jacobson's 'A League of Their Own' Series
"So what if right here, right now, we forget the rules." Amazon has revealed the full-length trailer for A League of Their Own, a series about early women's baseball teams based on the movie. A League of Their Own evokes the joyful spirit of Penny Marshall's beloved classic, while widening the lens to tell the story of an entire generation of women who dreamed of playing professional baseball. "This is about to be a home run." The story follows a group of players coming together to play in the WWII All-American professional women's baseball league. I love Penny Marshall's original film with Tom Hanks & Geena Davis - one of the best baseball movies ever made. It's a daunting challenge to live up to that. Prime Video's series stars Abbi Jacobson (who also writes & produces), Chanté Adams, D'Arcy Carden, Priscilla Delgado, Roberta Colindrez, Gbemisola Ikumelo, Kelly McCormack, and Nick Offerman. This looks way better than it should for a remake of such a great movie. Not only a fantastic cast, but the filmmaking looks sharp, too.
