Amazon Prime Video Pitches Teaser Trailer for ‘A League of Their Own’

Amazon Prime Video Tuesday released the first trailer for its baseball-themed series A League of Their Own, which debuts on the streaming service Aug. 12.

The eight-episode series, a retelling of Penny Marshall’s 1992 film of the same name, follows the story of an entire generation of women who dreamed of playing professional baseball. The show takes a deeper look at race and sexuality, following the journey of a whole new ensemble of characters as they carve their own paths towards the field, both in the league and outside of it, according to Prime Video.

The series stars Abbi Jacobson, Chante Adams, D’Arcy Carden, Gbemisola Ikumelo, Roberta Colindrez, and Nick Offerman. A League of Their Own is executive produced by Will Graham, Abbi Jacobson, Hailey Wierengo, Desta Tedros Reff, and Jamie Babbit. ■
