Priscilla Delgado is in a league of her own…
The 17-year-old Puerto Rican actress has been cast in Amazon’s hourlong pilot A League of Their Own, an adaptation of Penny Marshall’s 1992 feature film of the same name, from writers/executive producers Abbi Jacobson and Will Graham and Sony Pictures Television.
Delgado joins a cast that includes Kelly McCormack, with D’Arcy Carden and Jacobson, who are finalizing their acting deals, and Gbemisola Ikumelo, who is set.
Like the movie, A League of Their Own the series is about a women’s professional baseball league during World War II.
Delgado plays Izzy, an optimistic and fun girl who’s probably the youngest player to try out for the Rockford Peaches. The brave teenager left Cuba and landed in the Midwest just to play the game.
Delgado previously appeared in Pedro Almodovar’s Julieta, Abracadabra and The Evil That Men Do.
