What happens when you find yourself and your comedic voice — but also kind of piss off one of the most powerful women in the business in the process? We’re about to find out as the second season of the award-winning The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel hits Amazon Prime Video in December.
And that’s just a taste of what’s to come. The acclaimed Vanity Faire is also on the way, as is Life Itself, from This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman.
Plus, ya know, the holidays.
Here’s more on what you can expect on the Amazon Prime Original front:
