The baseball drama stars Kylie Bunbury as the first female player for Major League Baseball. The cast also includes Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Ali Larter, Mark Consuelo, Dan Lauria, Mo McRae, Meagan Holder, and Tim Jo. Season one of the show ended in December after earning lower-than-expected ratings.
As of now, FOX has not cancelled Pitch. Earlier this week, Newman said he’s proud of the show but doesn’t know about a season two yet. When asked about airing the show on a sports channel like MLB Network, the FOX chief said he’ll look into the idea:
We certainly would be open to it, but I can’t guarantee it. We have rights holders and profit participants and we always want to do what’s in the interest of them, but I think [MLB Network] is the perfect place to expose the show to the audience. I will look into that.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of Pitch? Do you think it will gain viewers on a sports channel like MLB Network?
