Kylie Bunbury to Star in Fox Baseball Drama Pilot About First Woman to Play in the Major Leagues

Fox has set Kylie Bunbury to star in a pilot titled "Pitch" – an hour-long drama from Dan Fogelman ("Grandfathered;" "Crazy, Stupid, Love") and Rick Singer ("Younger"), which centers on a young pitcher who becomes the first woman to play in the major leagues.

The pilot order is a part of Fogelman’s four-year development deal with 20th Century Fox TV to write, produce, and supervise various series.

In addition to CBS’s "Under the Dome," Bunbury has also appeared in the former Freeform show "Twisted" as well as the miniseries "Tut" on Spike.

Fogelman and Singer will write and executive produce along with Tony Bill and Helen Bartlett.
