The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel received 14 Emmy nominations last month for its first season. This includes nods for Best Comedy Series, Lead Actress for Brosnahan, Supporting Actress for Alex Borstein’s Susie Myerson and Supporting Actor for Tony Shalhoub’s Abe Weissman.

Created and written by Amy Sherman-Palladino of Gilmore Girls fame, Mrs. Maisel takes place in the 1950s. It’s about a Manhattan housewife whose husband suddenly leaves her and their two children for his secretary.

Midge flies off the handle after his departure, and she shows up at the Gaslight Café in her nightgown and goes on a long comedic rant that is mistaken for a stand-up routine. Susie Myerson discovers her and represents her while she takes her act to a more professional level.
