Pitch is in development at FOX. The baseball drama will tell the fictional story of the first female Major League Baseball player, and the MLB is getting involved in the project.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, a new licensing project has been signed between FOX and Major League Baseball. The news outlet shared the following about the deal:
“Under the new licensing pact — which has been months in the making — Ginny will pitch for the San Diego Padres, with the production filming at Petco Park, the team’s home stadium. Producers have also been granted the use of various MLB marks, logos, licensed product, uniforms, teams, stadiums, locations and game footage. The league will also provide expertise in ensuring the game’s accurate depiction in what is being billed as unparalleled access for a television series.”
This pilot has not yet been picked up as a series, but this deal might help on that front. Do you plan to watch Pitch? Tell us what you think.
