Abbi Jacobson, Chanté Adams, D’Arcy Carden and Gbemisola Ikumelo are among the stars on the TV reboot of the 1992 Penny Marshall film about the first female professional baseball league. Jacobson co-created the hourlong drama with Will Graham. "Twenty-eight years ago, Penny Marshall told us a story about women playing professional baseball that up until then had been largely overlooked," Jacobson and Graham said in a statement. "We grew up obsessed with the film, like everyone else. Three years ago, we approached Sony with the idea of telling a new, still overlooked set of those stories. With the help of an enormously talented team of collaborators, an amazing cast, and the devoted support of Amazon to this project, we feel beyond lucky and excited to get to bring these characters to life. It took grit, fire, authenticity, wild imagination and a crackling sense of humor for these players to achieve their dreams. We’re hoping to bring audiences a story with all of those qualities."
