Amazon to Premiere New Pilot from Gilmore Girls' Amy Sherman-Palladino

Tony Shalhoub will star!

Sadie Gennis

Amazon unveiled its newest pilot lineup, which includes a new project from Gilmore Girls' Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino.

Set in 1958, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel stars Rachel Brosnahan (House of Cards) as Miriam "Midge" Maisel, a proper Jewish wife and mother of two whose perfectly normal life takes an unexpected turn when she discovers her talent for stand-up comedy. Pursuing her new dream takes Midge from her comfortable home on the Upper West Side to Greenwich Village nightclubs and eventually even Johnny Carson's couch.

The one-hour pilot stars Tony Shalhoub as Midge's father Abe Weinberg, Marian Hinkle as her mother Rose Weinberg, Michael Zegas as her husband Joel Maisel and Alex Borstein as Susie Myerson.

All five of Amazon's new pilots will debut on Amazon Video on Friday, March 17, when viewers can begin leaving their feedback for the streaming service. Check out Amazon's other pilots below:
