HBO ‘Fielding’ new drama project

Rudin to exec produce, story based on Harbach novel

HBO is playing ball with “The Art of Fielding.”

Drama series in development is based on the novel by Chad Harbach. The book is a tale of bucolic Americana set against the backdrop of a fictional Midwestern university that follows the fate of five people upended by an errant baseball throw.

No writer is attached to the pilot yet. Scott Rudin will exec produce and Harbach will serve as consulting producer.

Rudin is also exec producing HBO drama pilot “More as This Story Develops,” about a cable news net. Jeff Daniels is starring in the Aaron Sorkin-penned pilot.
