Good Girls Revolt (Amazon Prime) - S: Anna Camp -- Series Thread - Premieres 10/28/16




In 1969, while a cultural revolution with a soundtrack to match swept through the free world, there was still one place that refused to change with the times: newsrooms. Good Girls Revolt follows a group of young female researchers, Jane Hollander (Anna Camp), Patti Robinson (Genevieve Angelson), Cindy Reston (Erin Darke), at "News of the Week," who simply ask to be treated fairly. Their revolutionary request, led by lawyer Eleanor Holmes Norton (Joy Bryant) will spark convulsive changes and upend marriages, careers, sex lives, love lives, and friendships. The pilot is inspired by the landmark sexual discrimination cases chronicled in Lynn Povich's book, The Good Girls Revolt.

PRINCIPAL CAST INFORMATION:
∑ Anna Camp as Jane
∑ Chris Diamantopoulos as Finn
∑ Erin Darke as Cindy
∑ Genevieve Angelson as Patti
∑ Grace Gummer as Nora Ephron
∑ Hunter Parrish as Doug
∑ Jim Belushi as Wick McFadden
∑ Joy Bryant as Eleanor Holmes Norton

CREW INFORMATION:
∑ Dana Calvo as CRTR/EP
∑ Darlene Hunt as EP
∑ Don Kurt as EP
∑ Jeff Okin as EP
∑ Liza Johnson as DIR (Pilot)
∑ Lynda Obst as EP
∑ Lynn Povich as BOOK

Trailer:

Kinda sounds like Lou Grant crossed with Mad Men crossed with Masters of Sex, but I'll probably watch an episode just for Camp.

Geez, guess no one is watching here.

Unfortunately cancelled by Amazon today: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/liv...shopped-952149

Apparenty this is one of Amazon's highest rated originals. But, the President of Amazon Studios didn't like the show or the pitched 2nd season, so he passed on it.

Will be shopped elsewhere.

The series debuted Oct. 28 to mostly positive reviews (it has a 65 on Metacritic) and four and a half stars on Amazon. It was part of a freshman class that included previously renewed One Mississippi as well as Goliath, which Amazon boasted ranked as its "top binged first season of a U.S.-produced Amazon original series ever over its first 10 days." The streamer, like Netflix, does not release official ratings data for its streaming originals.

According to Deadline 67% of this show's audience is apparently female.

I guess that explains why no one at DVD Talk is watching

I had not seen any of this, but heard some good things. Had no idea Eleanor Holmes Norton was in it (the character). She's been DC's Representative in Congress for what seem like forever. Of course, any time I've heard her speak she sounds like an idiot. Hopefully that's not what she's really like and I've just caught some bad segments. But I'm not super optimistic about her...

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that ABC, Freeform, USA Network, Bravo and Hulu are in the running to pick up the Dana Calvo-created drama for a second season, with Netflix and Lifetime both considered longshots. Sony Pictures Television declined comment.

Same here. I watched the first 2 with my wife on release day, and neither of us have bothered to continue yet.
I only really watched it for Anna Camp, but damn if that Genevieve Angelson didn't turn out to he the real hottie of the show. Sweet Jeebus!

I'm three episodes in and I like it. Of course, now I find out it's cancelled. Man, I hate Amazon's streaming video interface. Can't rewind for shit.

May return to TV.

Sony is pitching a 2nd season to all the networks.

Good Girls Revolt had been canceled by discarded Amazon boss Roy Price. So when he recently was axed in the wake of accusations of sexual harassment toward a female producer, Good Girls Revolt started trending on social media. Series’ creator Dana Calvo and its stars were interviewed for stories, and a grassroots movement started to revive the show.
Because Good Girls Revolt was canceled so long ago, the studio doesn’t have deals with the cast. But they all have been active on social media, tweeting in support of the show and expressing desire to come back, so the actors are expected to rejoin if the show is resurrected.

I hear the networks that will be pitched on Good Girls Revolt will include Amazon, which was the show’s original home. The streaming service now has a new head of scripted series, Sharon Tal Yguado, who succeeded Price.

There are only so many networks that could take it, given the nudity, at the very least. I really enjoyed it, and it felt like it was setting up well for a great second season. I'd be down for more of this.
