It’s sure to be a home run.
Prime Video has set a Aug. 12 premiere date for A League of Their Own, based on the 1992 baseball film of the same name. All eight episodes of Season 1 will drop on that day.
The series captures the joyous spirit of Penny Marshall’s classic film—about the women’s professional baseball league formed during World War II—while also telling the narrative of an entire generation of women who aspired to be professional baseball players.
The 60-second trailer provides the first glimpses of the cast and includes scenes of team bonding, drinking and home life, while delving deeper into issues of race and sexuality, following a new cast of characters as they build their own routes to the field, both within and outside of the League.
The cast includes series creator Abbi Jacobson, Chanté Adams, D’Arcy Carden, Gbemisola Ikumelo, Roberta Colindrez, Nick Offerman, Saidah Arrika Ekulona, Kate Berlant, Kendall Johnson, Kelly McCormack, Alex Désert, Priscilla Delgado, Aaron Jennings, Molly Ephraim, Melanie Field and Dale Dickey.
