Amazon Pulls the Plug on Drama “Good Girls Revolt”



In an unexpected move, Amazon has given the ax to their period drama GOOD GIRLS REVOLT just after one season — but the show isn’t necessarily canceled yet. The reason for pulling the plug on the series is not because there has been a lack of critical praise but because Sony Pictures , who is responsible for the series, is looking to get the rights back in order to find another home for the drama.

Set in 1969, Good Girls Revolt stars Anna Camp, Genevieve Angelson, and Erin Darke and follows a group of young female researchers who work at News of the Week, inspired by the landmark sexual discrimination cases chronicled in Lynn Povich’s book of the same name.

The series was created by Dana Calvo and featured the portrayal the real-life people including Eleanor Holmes Norton (Joy Bryant), Nora Ephron (Grace Gummer) and Wick McFadden (Jim Belushi). Calvo executive produced alongside Lynda Obst, Darlene Hunt, Don Kurt, and Jeff Okin.

Good Girls Revolt joins Shawn Ryan’s Mad Dogs in Amazon’s list of shows canceled this year. Woody Allen’s Crisis in Six Scenes has yet to be renewed may or may not be added to that list.
