While it might share a name with the 1992 film, the TV series A League of Their Own is neither a remake nor a sequel to the movie. It features an entirely new cast of characters and storylines, even though it is also set in the real-life All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, which blossomed in the World War II era. Since the show (like the film) centers around the Rockford Peaches, a real AAGPBL team at the time, executive producers Destra Tedros Reff and Will Graham told us they did a deep dive into not only the team’s and league’s histories, but also into life in the town of Rockford, IL back in that era.
