Amazon’s Good Girl Revolt is bringing feminism, female leads and the fantastic story of a group of young women in the revolutionary times of 1969 to the screen.
The latest drama web-television series from Amazon is based on a true story — the show was inspired from the book of the same title by Lynn Povich.
Following a group of young female researchers, audiences will see this group of women make their way into a male dominated industry — requesting to write professionally when only men were hired for the roles.
Starring House of Lies actress Genevieve Angelson, Pitch Perfect‘s Anna Camp and Grace Gummer playing Nora Ephron — this new female-led series sounds promising.
A point of plot focus will be the fact that this crew of women were the first in media to sue for sex discrimination when they took their magazine, Newsweek, to court. Though it’s based on real life events, most of the characters are fictionalized.
Eleanor Holmes Norton and Nora Ephron, of course, are real life people. Yes, rom com queen Ephron — the brains behind gems like When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle will be a character on this show.
Rumour also has it that the executive producers of the show put the effort in on portraying realistic takes on the journalism industry — which is also a win.
This show is certainly something to get excited about. Here’s a behind the scenes share on Instagram from Camp to stimulate the enthusiasm just a bit more:
