D’Arcy Carden to Star With Abbi Jacobson in ‘League of Their Own’ Series at Amazon

Amazon’s pilot based on A League of Their Own is starting to fill out its lineup card.

The Good Place actress D’Arcy Carden is in talks to star in the pilot opposite Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson, who is also writing and executive producing. The half-hour comedy is based on the beloved 1992 movie about the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. Penny Marshall directed the film, which starred Tom Hanks, Geena Davis and Lori Petty.

Will Graham (Mozart in the Jungle) will write and exec produce with Jacobson. Hailey Wierengo, head of Graham’s Amazon-based Field Trip Productions, is also an exec producer.

Amazon’s take on the story is a modern look at the league and will not feature sisters Dottie Hinson and Kit Keller, played by Davis and Petty, respectively, in the film.
