The 1950 set comedy, created by the Gilmore Girls’s duo Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino, has already swept the Golden Globes winning the best TV comedy and is expected to repeat a similar performance at the upcoming Emmy’s.

Starring Rachel Brosnahan as a smart, intelligent and ambitious young woman, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is set in post-war New York where Mrs Midge Maisel turns the trope of the helpless 1950's American wife with a cheating husband and charts her own success on stage.

Rachel Brosnahan had also won the Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series award at the Golden Globes this year for the series, as reported by The Verge.
