Amy Sherman-Palladino & Daniel Palladino Sign Overall Deal with Amazon Studios

Sherman-Palladino and Palladino: TVLine/YouTube

Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino are making themselves at home at Amazon Studios. Deadline reports that the creative partners/spouses have signed a multi-year overall deal with the streamer. The new deal will see the duo continue to work on their previously announced stand-up dramedy “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” while developing new projects for Amazon.

Amazon gave “Mrs. Maisel” a two-season order this spring. The 1958-set series follows Miriam “Midge” Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan), a housewife who decides to pursue a career in comedy after her would-be stand-up comic husband (Michael Zegen) leaves her. Alex Borstein, Marin Hinkle, and Tony Shalhoub also star. The series’ first season is expected to drop later this year.

Gilmore Girls” creator Sherman-Palladino wrote and directed the “Mrs. Maisel” pilot and exec produced alongside Palladino. The series’ debut earlier this year marked “one of Amazon’s best received pilots ever,” Deadline writes, “with an average customer rating of 4.9.”

“Amy and Dan are brilliant. Everything they create has such an incredible vision behind it. On top of that, they’re wonderfully funny and smart people,” commented Joe Lewis, Amazon Studios’ Head of Comedy, Drama and Vr. “We’re excited about the next two seasons of ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ with them and, with this deal, we can’t wait to do a lot more together.”

“The team at Amazon has allowed us to have Dwight Eisenhower and John Kennedy as our presidents for the next few years and for that we are eternally grateful,” Sherman-Palladino and Palladino said in a statement. “Amazon is the future of television and we are thrilled to tag along for the ride.”

In addition to “Gilmore Girls,” Sherman-Palladino has created, written, and directed for the short-lived “Bunheads” and “The Return of Jezebel James.” Last November she revived her most beloved project on Netflix with “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.” It consisted of four mini-movies and brought back Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, and Kelly Bishop to reprise the roles of Lorelai, Rory, and Emily Gilmore. Almost all of the original main cast and supporting characters returned as well. Palladino served as producer on all of those series as well as on the original “Gilmore Girls.”

Amy Sherman-Palladino’s “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” Gets Two-Season Order

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”: Amazon Studios

As die-hard “Gilmore Girls” fans would say, “Copper boom!” “Gilmore” creator Amy Sherman-Palladino’s newest series, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” just got a two-season order from Amazon, The Hollywood Reporter writes. This is reportedly the first time Amazon has ever given a multi-season order to one of its pilots.

Starring “House of Cards’” Rachel Brosnahan as Miriam “Midge” Maisel, the pilot centers on a 1950s Jewish housewife who supports her husband (Michael Zegen, “Brooklyn”) as he pursues his passion for stand-up comedy. After one her husband’s sets bombs, Midge ends up at The Gaslight Cafe herself, drunkenly taking the stage and telling jokes of her own. And she kills it.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s” pilot was written, directed, and exec produced by Sherman-Palladino. Her husband and producing partner, Daniel Palladino, is also executive producing with Dhana Gilbert.

Citing the audience response as “digital applause,” Amazon head of comedy and drama Joe Lewis commented, “Like any great young stand-up, we’re excited to see what [‘Mrs. Maisel’] has to say next and for a long time to come. That made it an easy decision to order two seasons from Amy and her incredible cast. We can’t wait to bring it to customers soon.”

The “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” pilot is currently streaming for Amazon Prime subscribers. No word on a first season premiere date yet.

It’s heartening to see Amazon showing confidence in Sherman-Palladino and “Maisel,” especially since the streaming service tends to be rough on its women-created offerings. Dana Calvo’s women’s liberation-themed “Good Girls Revolt” was cancelled after one season despite strong ratings and its prescient subject matter. Jill Soloway, the creator of Amazon tentpole “Transparent,” was forced to go through the streaming giant’s pilot process again with “I Love Dick.” This would be perfectly reasonable if Amazon hadn’t handed out series orders to film directors Woody Allen and Nicolas Winding Refn and “Mad Men” creator Matthew Weiner without asking for pilots.

Sherman-Palladino’s resume is full of TV shows centered around women, often those who can spit out pages-long monologues without blinking an eye. In addition to “Gilmore Girls,” Sherman-Palladino has created, written, and directed for the short-lived “Bunheads” and “The Return of Jezebel James.” Last November, she revived her most beloved project on Netflix with “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.” It consisted of four mini-movies and brought back Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, and Kelly Bishop to reprise the roles of Lorelai, Rory, and Emily Gilmore. Almost all of the original main cast and supporting characters returned as well. Netflix is reportedly leaving the door open for additional “Gilmore Girls” installments, so Amazon might not the only placed you’ll find future Sherman-Palladino projects.
