Top 5 The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Facts


Prepare to binge. Welcome to MsMojo, and today we’re counting down our picks for the Top 5 The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Facts.

For this list, we’ll be looking at fun facts related to the Amazon original series “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”.

#5: It’s about a Woman in the ‘50s Who Becomes a Comedian

How can you not be excited after hearing what this show is about? A period dramedy, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” focuses on down-on-her-luck Midge, who throws caution to the wind in order to become a stand up comic in the Big Apple…what’s not to like? The show has definitely done its comedy history homework, mentioning legends like Lenny Bruce – played in the show by Luke Kirby – and Bob Newhart, whose jokes may get borrowed by Midge’s husband Joel. The titular Mrs. Maisel is also partially inspired by the incomparable Joan Rivers. This series is both a throwback to a by-gone era, and a fresh take on what it’s like to be a woman trying to make it in a man’s world.

#4: It’s From the Creator of “Gilmore Girls”

If you were obsessed with the exploits of Lorelai, Rory and the rest of the Stars Hollow gang like we were, you’ll no doubt understand why Amy Sherman-Palladino’s association with “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” caused us to jump for joy. The longtime director, producer AND writer extraordinaire was responsible for creating one of the defining shows of the 2000s; one that was so popular it made a comeback in 2016. Now she’s sunk her teeth into a new project, and boy are we excited to see just how far she can take it. With one season down and another on the way, we have high hopes for Amy Sherman-Palladino’s newest endeavor.



#3: Star Rachel Brosnahan Has Been in Many Hit TV Shows

If you feel like you’ve seen the actress who plays Miriam “Midge” Maisel before, that’s because you probably have. Rachel Brosnahan has had a knack for popping up in hits shows for years. In 2010, she made one-episode appearances on “Gossip Girl” and “The Good Wife,” and in 2013 she landed the role of Rachel Posner on “House of Cards” – one that scored her an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series. Despite securing the gig that year, she still managed to pop up in episodes of “Orange Is the New Black” and “Grey’s Anatomy.” Soon after, she had a longer stint on “The Blacklist.” Talk about a small screen veteran!

#2: It’s Already Winning Awards

One season in and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” has already accrued an impressive list of accolades. The show scored a couple of Golden Globes in 2018, one for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy, while Brosnahan nabbed Best Actress – Television Series Musical or Comedy. Then, at the 8th Critics’ Choice Television Awards, Brosnahan won yet again for Best Actress in a Comedy Series, and the show beat out TV titans in “The Big Bang Theory” and “Modern Family” for Best Comedy Series. With this much hype, the second season has a lot to live up to!



#1: It Was One of the Most Successful Amazon Pilots Ever

Despite having a bonafide star in creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, Amazon was taking a bit of risk with “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”. Lead actress Rachel Brosnahan had never headlined a major TV show, and Sherman-Palladino’s post “Gilmore Girls” work had failed to find a major audience. So it came as quite the surprise when “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s” pilot became one of the streaming services highest rated of all time; debuting to an almost perfect customer rating. Clearly this was enough of a positive response for Amazon, as they wasted no time ordering two seasons of the period dramedy. It would appear that we have plenty of Mrs. Maisel to look forward to!
