Pitch (FOX) – Starts 22nd September – Cancelled
Sports drama about a woman who has become the first ever female pitcher to be called up into Major League Baseball. Starting off on the first day of her call up she has to try and integrate herself with her team mates who all think of her as a gimmick that won’t last more than a game, while coping with the pressure of being under the scrutiny of the public eye.
Along with the flashbacks of her hardline father training her up to become a pitcher throughout her youth, she has to deal with a game destroying bout of nerves that make her look like Snoop Dogg in the accuracy stakes. In the end it takes the egotistical star player to deliver a a speech on the mound to get her head back in the game and he pitching back on point.
Despite having a cliched ending which could be spotted a mile off, it’s not too bad an opening episode.
