Female Baseball Drama From Dan Fogelman and Rick Singer Gets Put Pilot at Fox

Fox has given a put pilot commitment to an hour-long drama that follows a young female pitcher who defies the odds to become the first woman to compete in professional baseball.

The untitled project, which hails from 20th Century Fox TV for Fox Broadcasting Company, will be penned and exec-produced by names not usually associated with television drama: Rick Singer (“American Dad!”) and Dan Fogelman (“Galavant,” “Grandfathered”). Non-writing exec producers are Tony Bill and Helen Bartlett.

The subject is a timely one. Last year, Mo’ne Davis made headlines as the first female player to pitch a shutout in the Little League World Series. In June, French shortstop Melissa Mayeux became the first known female baseball player to make Major League Baseball’s international registration list.

Singer is repped by ICM. Fogelman, who is pictured above, is repped by WME. Last week, Fogelman landed a pilot deal for an ensemble dramedy at NBC.
