Sherman-Palladino’s sarcastic, fast-talking brunettes have become her signature style, whether in present-day Stars Hollow or in 1950s New York. The latter, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” was not only one of Amazon’s best-received pilots, it became the first to earn a two-season pickup for the OTT provider.

It’s no wonder Amazon Studios has locked her Dorothy Parker Drank Here into a multi-year deal.
