New on Amazon Prime Video: Prime Video’s A League of Their Own is an exciting sports show based on the 1992 movie of the same title. The series is co-created and executive produced by Abbi Jacobson, who also stars as Carson, a woman who leaves her life in Idaho behind to try out for the Peaches, a new professional women’s baseball league.
A League of Their Own is one of the most-anticipated series of the summer, and can stream it for free through Prime Video if you’re an Amazon Prime member.
Set in 1943, according to Amazon Studios, “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, both inside the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League and outside of it. The show follows Carson (Abbi Jacobson) and Max (Chanté Adams) and a new ensemble of sharp and hilarious characters as they carve their paths toward the field, along the way finding their teams and themselves.”
The new show stars Chanté Adams as Max, D’Arcy Carden as Greta, Nick Offerman as the Peaches’ manager, Dove, and a new team and cast, with an appearance from Rosie O’Donnell, who played Doris in the original, in a new role.
