Mia Hamm gets producing kicks

Soccer star teams with Breaking Ball for 'Alive'

Hamm will produce with Scott Abramovitch and Lonny Dubrofsky, and Abramovitch will write the script.

Book is the fact-based story of a women’s soccer team in Montclair, N.J., which was formed by mothers who were tired of standing on sidelines while their kids played. Book blends the story of the team with the womens’ recollections of defining moments in their personal lives.

Simon & Schuster published Araton’s book.
