TV THR Says Fox May Bring Back Cancelled Series "Pitch"

"Pitch" Canceled by Fox after 1 Season
by Nellie Andreeva
May 1, 2017



Fox has done the inevitable, officially canceling drama "Pitch" after one season. The move fully was expected — in anticipation of the cancellation, the show released all of its writers two weeks ago.

The show’s cast and producers, including creator/executive producer Dan Fogelman and exec producer Kevin Falls, were informed of the network’s decision today. Falls and co-star Dan Lauria posted messages about the cancellation on social media.





Here is Lauria’s message to fans on Facebook:


Quote:
Hello Gang, Pitch is officially no more. Fox, in their infinite, but not so wise wisdom, has decided to cancel PITCH. I knew the longer they took the less chance we had but I did have renewed hope when Thursday night football had been canceled. We would have done better without even having a new time slot. Excuse me, I’m being logical.

PITCH, was a great experience, Kevin Falls, Rick Singer and of course Dan Fogelman put together one of the best writing staffs I ever worked with. Our cast was THE most professional I ever worked with, not a headache in the bunch. Our staff and crew, the best. I wish everyone a continued great career. Love each and everyone of those involved with PITCH.

As for me; back to the theatre where I belong.




Starring Kylie Bunbury as the first woman to play Major League Baseball, "Pitch" earned some of the season’s strongest reviews when it debuted in the fall. Whether it was scheduling or other reasons, it never drew large enough viewership, though its ratings were pretty stable. In L+SD, the series averaged 3 million viewers and a 0.8 in 18-49.

It was one of two new drama series Fox introduced in the fall that did not get back orders, along with "The Exorcist", which is expected to come back.

I remember some hype about it but I'm not into sports so I wasn't going to watch it anyway, but too bad for the crew.

"Pitch" Star Kylie Bunbury Thanks Fans in Social Media Post
by Erik Pedersen
May 1, 2017



The woman who played the pitcher on "Pitch" wrote a post-mortem on social media after Fox canceled the drama today after its rookie season.
Bunbury played Ginny Baker, who makes history as the first woman to play Major League Baseball, pitching for the San Diego Padres.

"Pitch" earned strong reviews when it debuted in the fall but never drew large enough viewership. Its ratings were pretty stable, though, averaging 3 million viewers and a 0.8 in 18-49 in Live+Same Day numbers.





Bunbury wrote on Instagram:

Quote:
My heart is heavy. 💔 Pitch will not be returning. I don’t have some eloquently thought out caption, because I’m still processing it all. Ginny Baker has profoundly changed my life and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to play a role that resonated with so many people.

I wasn’t ready to let go of Ginny, but more than anything I wasn’t ready to let go of my Pitch family- the cast, crew, creators and writers, thank you for the magic. MOST IMPORTANTLY!!!- Thank you to all of the fans who took the journey with us! Your support and love for the show has always moved us deeply! I love you all. ❤️ Ginny Baker out ✌🏽⚾️

Disney's 20th TV may revive Dan Fogelman's now-defunct 2016 sports drama "Pitch" as a carrot to entice the "This Is Us" creator to remain in-house after his network deal is up.
