Amazon Studios greenlights Amy Sherman-Palladino’s ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’
MUMBAI: Online retail major and content creator Amazon has greenlit ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ for two seasons on Prime Video.
The Amazon Original series, from creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and executive producer Daniel Palladino (Family Guy), is Amazon Studios’ first multi-season greenlight of a new series in its history.
The series, written and directed by Sherman-Palladino, stars Rachel Brosnahan as Miriam “Midge” Maisel, a 1958 New York City woman who has everything she’s ever wanted—the perfect husband, two kids, and an elegant Upper West Side apartment perfect for hosting Yom Kippur dinner. But her perfect life suddenly takes an unexpected turn and Midge discovers a previously unknown talent—one that changes her life forever. She charts a course that takes her from her comfortable life on Riverside Drive, through the basket houses and nightclubs of Greenwich Village as she storms the world of stand-up comedy…a course that will ultimately lead her to a spot on Johnny Carson’s couch.
“In her onstage debut, Mrs. Maisel killed and had audiences responding overwhelmingly with digital applause. Like any great young stand-up, we’re excited to see what she 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,” said Amazon Studios head of comedy, drama, VR Joe Lewis.
‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ also stars Michael Zegen as Midge’s husband Joel Maisel, Alex Borstein as Susie Myerson, Tony Shalhoub as Midge’s father Abe Weissman, and Marin Hinkle as Midge’s mother Rose Weissman.
