Almost a year after it was canceled by Amazon after one season, feminist period drama Good Girls Revolt might be coming back. I hear Sony Pictures TV Studios, whose TriStar Television division produced the series, is preparing a pitch for a new season that would go out shortly.
While Sony TV is known for going the extra mile on saving its shows, this time Good Girls Revolt is being resurrected by popular demand. The series, which tackles gender equality sexual discrimination in the workplace, emerged as an unlikely poster child in the current crackdown on sexual harassment in Hollywood, which started with the demise of Fox News’ Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly and switched into high gear with the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
Kevin Hart and “Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston are co-starring in a buddy-comedy film called “The Upside.” The project, which is an English language remake of the French original “The Intouchables,” began filming in January of this year and is expected to premiere sometime in 2018.
Previously titled “Untouchable,” it will follow the story of an unlikely friendship between a wealthy quadriplegic named Phillip (Bryan Cranston) and his caretaker named Dell (Kevin Hart) who is freshly released from prison.

In early December, Amazon Video announced that it would not be renewing its new series Good Girls Revolt for a second season. The show, inspired by veteran journalist Lynn Povich’s book, told the story of the landmark sex discrimination lawsuit she and 45 other women filed against Newsweek in 1970. Good Girls Revolt captures the cultural awakening of that time period and centers on a group of young women who, despite doing work similar to that of their male coworkers, are paid less and are relegated to the title “researchers,” while their male colleagues are “reporters,” getting all the credit and bylines. The first season chronicles the women organizing to sue their employer, “News of the Week,” to be treated fairly. The show received a lot of positive buzz, a 4.5 star rating from over 18,000 viewers, and was selected by Newsweek as one of the best of 2016, but that wasn’t enough for Amazon, apparently. Just five weeks after it premiered, Amazon Video cancelled it.
