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.
Amazon’s abrupt cancellation of the critically acclaimed series “Good Girls Revolt” has struck a nerve with feminists and fans in the wake of recent real-world events.
On the surface, the series tells the story of women who demand the same opportunities as their male colleagues at the fictitious magazine News of the Week — a story inspired by real events that transpired at Newsweek in 1970. On a deeper level, it tells a dozen smaller stories of women confronting daily injustices in their own way.
Season one of Good Girls Revolt was available to stream exclusively through Amazon Video. The show was well received among critics, who applauded Amazon for highlighting these issues at a time when many women feel marginalized by political dialogue. It also performed well with viewers, according to a third-party report from Symphony Data obtained by GeekWire.
Let’s transport ourselves back to New York City in 1969, shall we? Good Girls Revolt tells the story about what happens when a group of women demand equal treatment at the newspaper where they work, spawning the perfect crossover between Mad Men and The Newsroom. Never mess with driven, determined female researchers, y’all.
