“A League of Their Own” Series Gains Nick Offerman

We want to be the first to tell you that Nick Offerman has joined the long-gestating “League of their Own” tv series. Not truly a reboot but more of an expansion of the beloved Penny Marshall flick, this Amazon series aims to dive deeper into the world of the Rockford Peaches and the members of the All American League.

Today’s news is that Offerman has joined the show as Dove Porter. As Deadline says:

Casey “Dove” Porter is an ex-Cubs pitcher brought in to coach the Rockford Peaches, most famous because his forkball killed a dove in mid-air in the middle of a game. Inspiring and charismatic, Dove was thought to be the next big MLB star, but blew his arm out after three years. Now he’s looking to make his comeback by making the Peaches into champions.

Offerman joines stars Abbi Jackson (who co-created the series) and Chanté Adams, as well as D’Arcy Carden, Gbemisola Ikumelo, Roberta Colindrez, Kelly McCormack, Priscilla Delgado, Molly Ephraim, Kate Berlant, and Melanie Field.

We don’t have a release date yet, but we’ll let you know what we hear about this and other projects.
