Amazon releases new trailer for show Good Girls Revolt
I think Amazon is doing pretty well when it comes to their new shows. I liked the pilots for JEAN-CLAUDE VAN JOHNSON and THE TICK, and have heard good things about MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE. They now have another show in the works, which is said to be "MAD MEN, but feminist" which sounds right up my alley - even if I'm sure that description is going to get groans from the comments section. Anyway, here's the synopsis:
In 1969, while a cultural revolution 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 at "News of the Week," who ask to be treated fairly. Their revolutionary request sparks convulsive changes and upends marriages, careers, sex lives, love lives, and friendships.
Amazon has also released a new trailer:
This, in my opinion, looks great! I love the message and would like to see more stories about strong women. Let's just hope that the series itself is able to keep up the energy and pep of the trailer. This is one I'm definitely keeping an eye out for.
The show is set to be released on October 28, 2016 on Amazon Video.
