Amazon Studios has just announced that they will be developing their own A League of Their Own series, but taking it into a more modernized direction. While this is true, it will not feature the same characters from the beloved 1992 film.
The description for the Amazon version of A League of Their Own is:
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.
This new series will be produced by Sony Pictures Television Studios with Will Graham from Mozart in the Jungle and Abbi Jacobson from Broad City co-writing and executive producing the half-hour comedy series.
