Broad City co-creator/star Jacobson is in negotiations to play the lead in A League of Their Own, which revolves around about a women’s professional baseball league during World War II.
Jacobson will play Carson, a farm girl whose husband is off fighting the war. She runs away from home and tries out for the league in response to an advertisement.
Carden will play Greta, a beautiful and worldly player who once was in the Army. Ikumelo will play Clance.
Originally set up at Amazon last year as a half-hour comedy, A League of Their Own has been converted into one-hour ahead of a quiet pilot order.
Ikumelo is repped by Paradigm in the U.S. and the Curtis Brown Group in the UK.
