THE MARVELOUS MRS

Melissa Rivers claims mother Joan Rivers inspired The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel... but feels 'violated' over the 'lack of acknowledgment' from the Amazon show

Melissa Rivers has claimed that her mother, the legendary comedian Joan Rivers, is one of the inspirations behind Amazon's hit series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and feels disappointed that she hasn't been properly acknowledged for it.Joan died in 2014 at the age of 81, and Melissa suggests that her life mirrors that of the lead character Miriam "Midge" Maisel who swaps being a housewife for a stand-up comic in the 1950s, while Joan made a similar pioneering leap in the 1960s.
