Washington D.C. [USA] Sep 18 (ANI): The fans of 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' now have a reason to rejoice as the Television Academy handed Amazon its first-ever Emmy series win for the best comedy series.
This is the first time that a streaming show has won in the comedy series category, which had been dominated by 'Veep' for the last three years.
Daniel Palladino, who serves as showrunner and executive producer alongside his wife, Amy Sherman-Palladino, thanked Amazon in his speech. "You guys have been nothing but supportive," he said, reported The Hollywood Reporter.
Rachel Brosnahan also won the Emmy for lead actress in a comedy series for her portrayal of Midge Maisel in the comedy-drama.
In its first season, Mrs. Maisel was seen having everything - the perfect husband, two kids and an elegant apartment in New York's Upper West Side. Her life then took a surprising turn when she discovered a hidden talent she didn't previously know she had - stand-up comedy.
The second season is set to premiere later this year in which the action moves from New York City to Paris, with the newly-single Midge juggling all tasks- from taking care of her kids to leaving the audience in fits with her stand-ups. (ANI)
