Kylie Bunbury winds up for the pitch in the trailer for her new Fox show, Pitch.
Here’s the summary: A beautiful, tough and gifted athlete, Ginny Baker (Bunbury) is vaulted into instant fame when she’s called up by the San Diego Padres to make her Major League debut. Like any rookie, Ginny must prove herself to her teammates. Foremost among them is Mike Lawson (Mark-Paul Gosselaar), the team’s ruggedly handsome star catcher. There’s instant chemistry between them, although neither dares admit it. After all, Mike is captain of the team and a few of his players don’t even want Ginny on the field.
Guiding her is her agent/confidante Amelia Slater (Ali Larter), who saw Ginny’s star potential early on and left her previous job as a Hollywood publicist to concentrate on the young phenom. Although groomed for this moment by her demanding father, Bill Baker (Michael Beach), the end of Ginny’s improbable journey is the beginning of an almost impossible one: representing her gender as she embarks on a successful baseball career under the glare of the white-hot media spotlight.
It’s a goal hard enough for anyone to achieve – except this player is also a woman, who happens to be the most important historical figure in sports since Jackie Robinson. This season, Ginny Baker will be the other woman trying to break into one of the oldest, most exclusive men’s clubs in the country.
Ryan Dorsey also stars in the show, which will debut Thursdays @9PM ET/PT this fall on the network.
King Tut (Avan Jogia) rides into battle with his army in the brand new trailer for the upcoming TUT.
The mini-series event explores the drama of power, political back-stabbing, war and murder and chronicles King Tut’s rise to glory, his efforts to rule a chaotic empire and the enigma surrounding his death.
“While we were filming, we found more evidence of Tutankhamun’s death, his physical ailments, and all kinds of extraordinary details,” Sir Ben Kingsley, who plays Ay, the grand vizier to King Tutankhamun, shared with Yahoo.
He added, “And a lot of the stuff that was found, [including] the contents of his tomb, are replicated beautifully in Tut. The Ancient Egyptians were committed to the idea of immortality, and they achieved it. Because we are using what they left behind and are putting it on the screen.”
TUT premieres on Sunday, July 19th @ 9PM ET/PT on Spike.
