Amazon Studios is developing A League of Their Own series, according to The Hollywood Reporter, though the project will be more of a modern adaptation of the story. Mozart in the Jungle‘s Will Graham and Broad City‘s Abbi Jacobson will co-write and executive produce the half-hour comedy series. It will be based on Penny Marshall’s 1992 film starring Tom Hanks, Geena Davis, Madonna, Lori Petty, Jon Lovitz, David Strathairn, Garry Marshall, and Bill Pullman.

The trade says that the League of Their Own series will not feature either Davis’ Dottie or her sister, Kit (Petty), but is instead described as follows:

A League of Their Own is a half-hour comedy infusing the warmth, humor and DNA of the classic film, while taking a contemporary spin on the stories of the women surrounding the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. The show will begin with the formation of the league in 1943 and follows the Rockford Peaches, season to season as they struggle to keep the team alive through close games, injuries, late night bar crawls, sexual awakenings, not crying and road trips across a rapidly changing United States. The series dives deeper into the issues facing the country while following a ragtag team of women figuring themselves out while fighting to realize their dreams of playing professional baseball.

The show will be produced by Sony Pictures Television Studios. Sony’s Columbia Pictures released the film.

CBS previously tried to adapt the film in 1993 with a series that featured Megan Cavanagh (Marla Hooch) and Tracy Reiner (Betty “Spaghetti”) reprising their roles.The series was pulled after three episodes.
