'A League of Their Own' Amazon Series in the Works

A TV adaptation of A League of Their Own is in the works!

The iconic 1992 film starring Geena Davis and Tom Hanks is set to be turned into an Amazon series by Mozart in the Jungle executive producer Will Graham and Broad City co-creator Abbi Jacobson.

The half-hour series will be a modern take on the story of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, although it will still be set in 1943.

The show will follow the team 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.”

According to THR, the show is in development, with a mini-writers room set to open and deliver scripts before Amazon makes an official decision.
