Good Girls Revolt got dumped and that’s just wrong!
Amazon recently dumped “Good Girls Revolt”, one of the best shows of the year and the most relevant in today’s atmosphere of “me too” and sexual harassment and predation. And it was dumped by by an exec at Amazon who got run off for his sexual impropriety. Fair? No way. I’m on the bandwagon to bring back this stellar show.
If you liked “Mad Men”‘s recreation of the 60s and 70s vibe you’ll love this show. This show fully transports you to this era. And the women. The women! They as gorgeous as you can imagine in this era (and I know as I grew up in this era). They populate the ground floor of the newsroom while the men all work upstairs and get all the credit and write all the articles. The women are “researchers” and coffee errand runners.
Dana Calvo’s show is based on the sex discrimination case against Newsweek in Lynn Povich’s “Good Girls Revolt” book.
Did I say gorgeous? Yes, Ann Camp, Erin Darke and Genevieve Angelson in the lead roles are awesome, especially Angelson who is the epitome of that era’s hippy free spirit. We have a page dedicated to Good Girls Revolt which you can follow.
