Exit, "Gilmore Girls"; enter "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel."
Amazon has unveiled the trailer and release date for Amy Sherman-Palladino's next series. All eight episodes of dramedy will debut November 29 — a year after "Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life" streamed on Netflix. The pilot has already been available on Amazon for some time and has received positive reviews.
Rachel Brosnahan stars Miriam "Midge" Maisel, a woman living in 1958 New York whose life seems to be perfect — a wonderful husband, two darling kids, a fabulous Upper East Side apartment. Then, things take an unexpected turn when she discovers a previously unknown talent for stand-up comedy.
Midge sets out on a path that takes her through various Greenwich Village comedy clubs and ultimately lands her on Johnny Carson's couch.
The cast includes Tony Shaloub ("Monk"), Alex Borstein ("Family Guy"), Marin Hinkle ("Two and a Half Men"), and Jane Lynch ("Glee").
