Sherman-Palladino’s Amazon series “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” about a woman who abandons life as a housewife to pursue stand-up, has been an Emmy juggernaut, following eight wins in its inaugural season with 20 nominations for season two. And yet her own life was once on radically different path. Trained as a dancer, she had a callback for a role in a touring production of “Cats” in 1990, but she spurned it to step in as a staff scribe on “Roseanne.” Ten years later, she stepped out of the writers’-room shadows by creating “Gilmore Girls,” which ran for seven seasons before fans were rewarded with a four-episode revival on Netflix in 2016. And now the world salivates in anticipation of season three of “Maisel” in December.
