Amazon Prime Video will offer “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” for free this weekend, all to celebrate the new series’ two Golden Globes wins. For a limited time, anyone can stream the series on Amazon Prime Video, without an Amazon Prime Membership.
The free weekend will run from Friday, January 12 at 12:01am local time and will wrap-up at 11:59pm local time Monday, January 15, 2018. If you missed the Golden Globes this weekend, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel won the Golden Globe for Best Musical or Comedy TV Series, and Rachel Brosnahan won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy TV Series for her role in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
According to Amazon the series has been especially popular with New Yorkers, which happens to be the location of the new series. Of the top 30 cities in the US, the place that streamed the most hours per customer of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel was New York City, followed by Portland and Seattle. More than half of US Prime members who completed the series finished within three days, and the most popular time to start the series was 9pm ET—making it the perfect series to stream over the holiday weekend ahead.
“Big kudos and congrats to Rachel for her first Golden Globe and to Amy for an outstanding first season,” said Greg Hart, Vice President of Prime Video. “We are excited for new viewers to join in the celebration and stream the series for free this weekend.”
Rachel Brosnahan (House of Cards) stars as Miriam “Midge” Maisel, a 1958 New York City woman who has everything she’s ever wanted—the perfect husband, two kids and an elegant Upper West Side apartment perfect for hosting Yom Kippur dinner. But when her life takes a surprise turn, she has to quickly decide what else she’s good at—and going from housewife to stand-up comic is a wild choice to everyone but her.
The series was created by Amy Sherman-Palladino and executive produced, written and directed by Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino. This past week, Sherman-Palladino was nominated for the prestigious Directors Guild of America (DGA) Award.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel also stars Golden Globe winner and three-time Emmy winner Tony Shalhoub (Monk) as Midge’s father Abe Weissman, Alex Borstein (Family Guy) as Susie Meyerson, Michael Zegen (Boardwalk Empire) as Midge’s husband Joel Maisel and Marin Hinkle (Two and a Half Men) as Midge’s mother, Rose Weissman.
