Women take on workplace discrimination in the 1960s news business in “Good Girls Revolt,” a new streaming series from Amazon. And the first trailer shows they had a lot to fight against.
The series -- which made the rounds as a pilot for consideration on Amazon last November before being picked up -- looks to pick up where “Mad Men” left off, following a group of driven young women at the fictional News of the Week newspaper in 1969 New York vying for a place at the professional table.
The cast includes Genevieve Angelson, Anna Camp, Erin Darke, Hunter Parrish, Jim Belushi and Grace Gummer, who stars as a younger version of real-life writer and filmmaker Nora Ephron.
“Good Girls Revolt” begins streaming October 28.
