You guys, this is great news. The creator of Gilmore Girls has a new show entitled, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and she's bring could be bringing the full series to Amazon. I promise you won't want to miss it. The drama, which is being spearheaded by Amy Sherman-Palladino, is reportedly about a New York City woman named Miriam “Midge” Maisel, who basically goes from an uptown housewife to stand-up comic after uncovering her hidden talent in Greenwich Village during the late 1950s, according to Deadline. It all sounds pretty intriguing, if you ask me. The premiere episode will become available for streaming on Amazon beginning Friday, March 17, and you're probably going to want to be tuned in.
You see, it's going to be really important to watch because, as per Amazon's typical mode of series development, subscribers will be able to voice their opinions on whether or not they think The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel should go into full production as a series. So, if you're Gilmore Girls fan, this is surely going to be must see TV.
There should be plenty of good things to come from the hour long pilot, given its strong foundation. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is being written and directed by Sherman-Palladino, and she will also reportedly serve as executive producer alongside husband Daniel Palladino of Family Guy fame.
As far as casting goes for the series, Rachel Brosnahan has been tapped to portray Midge Maisel, while Michael Zegen, Alex Borstein, and Tony Shalhoub will play supporting roles in the new project.
I don't know about you guys, but I'll definitely be tuning in to watch the twists and turns of Midge Maisel's new life and career. Just judging from the press release, she sounds like a woman after my own heart, going after her dreams and embarking on the unknown during a time when women were not so welcomed into male-dominated industries. I can't wait to watch, because I'll certainly be rooting her on.
