‘Good Girls Revolt’ revival reportedly being eyed at Sony
“Good Girls Revolt” might be getting a second chance. ‘Good Girls Revolt’ revival reportedly being eyed at Sony.
The Amazon show about a group of young women looking for more professional respect at a news magazine in 1970 is being shopped at Sony, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The drama, which focused on gender discrimination and sexual harassment in the workplace, has taken on even more significance recently in light of the hundreds of sexual misconduct accusations in Hollywood.
“Good Girls Revolt” was one of Amazon’s biggest series ever among female viewers and the second biggest debut season for an Amazon original series with women ages 18 to 49, according to Deadline.
The show was canceled by Amazon Studios head Roy Price just weeks after its premiere in October 2016.
A year later, Price was ousted amid sexual harassment claims from “Man in the High Castle” executive producer Isa Hackett Dick.
“Good Girls Revolt” creator Dana Calvo said shortly after that Price had never even watched the show.
“He canceled #goodgirlsrevolt a show about sexual discrimination and harassment in the workplace,” star Anna Camp tweeted shortly after Price was suspended.
Erin Darke, who played researcher Cindy Reston, also called out the hypocrisy.
“The show getting canceled in that way felt so horribly meta,” she told the Washington Post in October.
“And such a horrific reminder of how far we haven’t come when one guy who seems didn’t even watch it just had the power himself to say no, no one gets to watch it.”
