Amazon Prime Video hasn’t been playing at work this year. The streamer has been delivering awesome shows after shows, with A League of Their Own being the most recent on the list.
The series is an adaptation of the 1992 film of the same title. Will the adaptation hit more than its predecessor?
A League Their Own of 1992 narrates a tale of a true All-American Girl’s Professional Baseball league that went for a few seasons during WWII, concentrating on the Rockford Peaches, particularly the team’s manager and a pair of sisters.
The adaptation revises its predecessor, intending to widen its scope. A League of Their Own 2022 revives Penny Marshall’s joyful spirit while narrating the story of an inter-generational group of women who dream of becoming professional baseball players.
Who Are The Showrunners?
The late Penny Marshall directed the original movie with Lori Petty, Tom Hanks, Geena Davis Rosie, and Madonna O’Donnell as the stars.
The series is now being revived as a TV show, created by Will Graham and Abbi Jacobson.
