Mayes, who has appeared in episodes of “Cold Case,” “Medium” and “Bones,” will play a sexy rookie pitcher whose love interest is a young woman (Laura Bell Bundy) attempting a career as a country singer but is currently a bartender.
Shelton, of course, is in his element with all things sports. His resume as a writer-director includes “Bull Durham,” “White Men Can’t Jump” and “Tin Cup.”
Others already cast include Chris Butler and Ryan Doom. “Hound Dogs” centers on a fictional Nashville team whose players and general manager have plenty of personal issues to contend with off the field.
Mayes is repped by WME.
