Kylie Bunbury to Star in Fox Drama About MLB’s First Female Pitcher

Kylie Bunbury to Star in Fox Drama About MLB's First Female Pitcher

Kylie Bunbury has been cast as the lead in "Pitch," Fox’s just-picked-up drama about the major leagues’ first pitcher. 

The series will focus on a young female baseball player as she becomes the female Jackie Robinson. Since the series’ creators and EPs are so far all male, we hope they recruit several female writers to tell this story of a woman challenging expectations in a male-dominated field  — and almost certainly battling sexism along the way.

Bunbury’s previous credits include "The Sitter," as well as the TV series "Under the Dome," "Tut" and "Twisted."
