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

10 April 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

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.

Amy Sherman-Palladino’s “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” Gets Two-Season Order was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Homeland, Arrow, Nashville and Scandal!

1 | Did Hawaii Five-0‘s Melissa occasionally let slip a look suggesting that she was mulling a more (ahem) Cinemax-appropriate ending to her, Danny, Steve and Lynn’s Valentine’s double date?

2 | Did Emerald City‘s “handiwork” between Lady Ev and Jack forever run The Wizard of Oz‘s “Oil me” scene for you?

Sweet/Vicious: proof of how vital female voices are to TV

15 February 2017 2:33 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Caroline Preece Feb 17, 2017

As the fate of MTV's Sweet/Vicious hangs in the balance, here's why TV in 2017 needs many more female voices calling the shots...

If you haven’t heard about Sweet/Vicious, the new comedy/superhero series airing on MTV in the Us, then you’re seriously missing out.

See related  The unmade films of Kevin Smith Why Mallrats 2 can’t get made Kevin Smith interview: Yoga Hosers, Arrow, Mallrats Clerks III dead, new Jay & Silent Bob movie coming instead

Dishearteningly, despite a growing cult following based on word of mouth, there’s been a distinct lack of noise around the show since it premiered. As of writing this it's ‘on the bubble’ and facing possible cancellation as MTV re-evaluates its scripted drama efforts, and there’s no word of a UK air date. All of this has the potential to limit the number of eyeballs that fall upon the show, »
