Amazon has firmed up cast for A League Of Their Own comedy pilot, adding Chanté Adams (Bad Hair) and Roberta Colindrez (Vida) as series regulars, joining previously announced Kelly McCormack (Killjoys) and Priscilla Delgado (Julieta). Also confirmed are Gbemisola Ikumelo (Famalam) and The Good Place alum D’Arcy Carden, who were previously reported to be nearing deals, along with writer-executive producer Abbi Jacobson. Florida Girls‘ Melanie Field is set to recur.

The hourlong pilot, a fresh approach to Penny Marshall’s 1992 feature film, hails from writers/executive producers Jacobson and Will Graham and Sony Pictures TV. The show will follow brand new characters who embody the spirit of a generation of incredible women who dared to play professional baseball. The show begins with the formation of the All American Girls Professional Baseball League in 1943 and follows our heroes as they fight to keep the League alive through close games, injuries, sexual awakenings and road trips across a rapidly changing United States.

Jacobson will play Carson Shaw, a catcher from a tiny farm town, who suddenly finds herself hopping the train to Chicago to chase a dream she didn’t even know she had.


Carden will portray Greta, a first basewoman with unbelievable stretch. Off the field, she’s also effortless, traveling the globe seeking new adventures and liaisons.

Adams is Max, a pitcher with an arm that could make men weep. She is ready for the big leagues and now, she just needs to make her own path there.

Ikumelo will play Clance. Born and raised in Rockford, Clance is Max’s best friend and biggest supporter, and a budding young artist in her ownright.

McCormack is Jess, a shortstop from Moosejaw, Canada, Jess was born to play the game. On the field, Jess feels the most herself and wishes the game would never end.

Colindrez will portray Mita, a cool, calm and collected pitcher from Texas ranch country, Mita’s got a killer poker face, on and off the field. She won’t reveal her secrets easily.

Delgado is Izzy. Straight from Havana, Izzy is the youngest, most enthusiastic Peach.

Field recurs as Jo, a power hitter from Queens, who has survived countless escapades with her best friend, Greta. Boisterous and up for anything, Jo will defend her teammates til the end.

A League of Their Own is produced by Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures TV in association with Field Trip Productions. Executive producers are Abbi Jacobson, Will Graham, Hailey Wierengo, and Jamie Babbit, who also directs the pilot.

Adams was most recently seen in Justin Simien’s film Bad Hair, which was in competition at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. She will next be seen starring in Universal and Stella Meghie’s Valentine’s Day release The Photograph opposite Issa Rae and Lakeith Stanfield. Later this year she will be seen starring in Lionsgate’s feature film Voyager, written and directed by Neil Burger.

Colindrez has been a series regular on Starz’s Vida for the past two seasons and also recurred in seasons two and three of the HBO drama The Deuce. She was previously seen on Amazon comedy I Love Dick. Colindrez also recently starred alongside John Ortiz and Judith Light in Ms. White Light, which premiered at SXSW and won the audience award at the Torino Film Festival 2019. She’s repped by Paradigm and manager Davien Littlefield.

Field currently is one of the leads on Pop TV’s scripted comedy series Florida Girls. She also recently appeared in season two of the hit Netflix series You, and will next be seen in a season-long arc on TNT’s The Alienist sequel The Angel of Darkness, which airs later this year. Her breakout role came as one of the leads in Paramount Network’s Heathers reboot based on the 1988 cult classic film.

What to expect: Based on Celeste Ng’s acclaimed novel of the same name, Little Fires Everywhere follows two women who become intertwined in a formidable mystery. Mia Warren is a single mother with a devious past and Elena Richardson is the vision of suburban perfection. What lies underneath their facade is far wilder than one could ever imagine. Taking place in the suburbs of Ohio, Little Fires Everywhere is a meditation on motherhood, adoption, and lies we tell ourselves to ease the pain.

Why it will rock your world: This clash of matriarchs is one to watch. While Elena is a local journalist and stickler for following the rules, Mia is an opposing force who is ready to threaten the order of the little town she’s moved to. Little Fires Everywhere not only fronts a talented cast of actors, but its source material is nothing short of prestigious. The fast-paced, emotionally jam packed miniseries will leave you at the edge of your seat. Just when you think you have the mystery all figured out, think again.


Streaming service: FX and Hulu

Cast: Cate Blanchett, Uzo Aduba, Rose Byrne, Kayli Carter, Ari Graynor, Melanie Lynskey, Roberta Colindrez, James Marsden, Sarah Paulson, John Slattery, Tracey Ullman, and Elizabeth Banks

What to expect:Mrs. America is a true telling of the movement to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment and the many different women who partook in it. Phyllis Schlafly, a staunch conservative firebrand, unleashed relentless backlash against the progressive movement but her ideology was met with defiance though the voices of second-wave feminists such as Gloria Steinem, Betty Friedan, Shirley Chisholm, Bella Abzug and Jill Ruckelshaus. Mrs. America tells their stories as well and explores how the culture wars of the ’70s created one of the most wrought battlegrounds in American history. The miniseries will also showcase the rise of the Moral Majority and how it irrevocably altered the politics in the United States.

Why it will rock your world: Apart from the insanely talented cast, Mrs. America is a feminist political drama for the ages. Not only is it more relevant than ever, considering the country’s political and social climate, but it also delicately peels back the layers of second-wave feminism. While we all the know the Equal Rights Amendment never passed, few know the precise details of what truly impeded its success. This is the tale untold of the paradigm shifting moment in history. Don’t be surprised if Mrs. America wins all the Emmys in 2020.


Two Clients featured in ’25 Best TV Episodes of 2017′- IndieWire

From IndieWire, 2 amazing clients are featured:

Pernell Walker in “The Deuce,” Season 1, Episode 8, “My Name Is Ruby”


Roberta Colindrez in  “I love Dick,” Season 1, Episode 5, “A Short History of Weird Girls”

The Deuce Season 1 Finale Episode 8 Pernell Walker

Sometimes an episode title says it all. The Season 1 finale of “The Deuce” wasn’t a solo hour dedicated to Ruby (Pernell Walker), a prostitute who calls herself “Thunder Thighs” and had been struggling to compete with the new police-protected, mob-built brothels. Vincent (James Franco) and Candy (Maggie Gyllenhaal) played as big a role as ever, as did the rest of David Simon and George Pellecanos’ stellar ensemble.

But the ending brought it all together, and not just the episode arc about realities separated by class, but the season as a whole. “The Deuce” features quite a few graphic scenes of women being abused or taken advantage of, and it consistently drives home both why this keeps happening and how America institutionalizes discrimination. “My Name Is Ruby” forces the mirror back on its audience in compelling fashion. For a period piece with plenty of modern parallels, it’s easy to get caught up in the series’ relevance. The finale puts a human face on the issues. It gives them a name. And it’s a name that won’t soon be forgotten.


I Love Dick Season 1 Episode 5 India Menuez Roberta Colindrez

“I Love Dick,” as a series, had its fascinating moments, but Episode 5, “A Short History of Weird Girls,” was perhaps the most impactful installment overall. A series of vignettes spotlighting the show’s female energy serves as a complete breakout from the main series, but invokes the show’s fascination with legendary female artists. It pays tribute to creators who had come before while also developing the women of the series beyond (the always awesome) Kathryn Hahn. “A Short History of Weird Girls,” on its own, is a fascinating experiment. But it’s also a vital part of one of 2017’s most intriguing series.
