The network has handed out series orders to dramas Pitch, The Exorcist, Lethal Weapon and APB and comedies Making Historyand The Mick.
All six projects had been among the network’s early frontrunners. All, save for Lethal Weapon, hail from studio sibling 20th Century Fox Television as the network looks to have an ownership stake in as much of its new series as possible.
Pitch marks the first Dan Fogelman project to go to series since the prolific producer’s move from ABC Studios to 20th TV. The drama centers on a young female pitcher (Kylie Bunbury, Under the Dome) who defies the odds when she becomes the first woman to play in the major leagues. In a first, Major League Baseball is partnering with Fox to produce the series, offering unparalleled access to its brand, logos, stadiums and more. The show is filming in San Diego, and the San Diego Padres will be the team featured on the series, which co-stars Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Ali Larter and Dan Lauria.
A substitution has been made in the line-up.
Heroes alum Ali Larter has been cast in the Fox drama pilot Pitch, replacing former CSI Elisabeth Shue.
Per our sister site Deadline, Shue’s departure comes after creative differences over the direction of her character, Amelia Slater, a sports agent who doubles as a personal guru for Major League Baseball’s first-ever female pitcher (to be played by Twisted‘s Kylie Bunbury).
Penned by Dan Fogelman (Galavant, The Neighbors) and Rick Singer (Younger), the cast of Pitch also includes Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Franklin & Bash), Mo McRae (Murder in the First), Meagan Holder (Ringer) and Tim Jo (The Neighbors).
