Amy Sherman-Palladino certainly knows how to create wildly popular television: One needn鈥檛 look any further than Gilmore Girls for proof. With a second fan fest for the show stirring up plenty of excitement, it鈥檚 clear Sherman-Palladino has the hit-making knack. That鈥檚 why you鈥檒l be psyched to find out that she has a brand new 鈥 and totally quirky! 鈥 series in the works.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is a possible new series for Amazon written and directed by Sherman-Palladino and executive produced by her hubby and professional partner, Daniel Palladino (who has also produced and directed for GG). With the pilot dropping later this month, the show will star Rachel Brosnahan (House of Cards) as the title character, Miriam 鈥淢idge鈥 Maisel, who, according to EW, is 鈥渁 1958 New York City woman who goes from uptown housewife to stand-up comic in Greenwich Village.鈥

With Michael Zegen (Boardwalk Empire) playing Midge鈥檚 husband Joel Maisel, Alex Borstein (Family Guy), Tony Shalhoub (Monk), and Marin Hinkle (Two and a Half Men) rounding out the cast, we can鈥檛 wait to check out The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel when it premieres on Amazon Video March 17: We鈥檙e already grinning at the potential silly situations this series could present! And with a mastermind like Sherman-Palladino at the reigns, it鈥檚 a safe bet we鈥檒l be laughing as hard as we cried during her more dramatic scenarios.

Fingers crossed that this gets picked up and becomes our fave new show. (Sorry, Rory.)
