On deck

A television series about the first female player in Major League Baseball?

Of course it premieres in 2016, the first year we have a credible chance of electing a female president. No coincidence there.

pitchBut when I watched the pilot episode on demand, I was pleasantly surprised.

First of all, the show is filled with supporting actors that I love seeing on TV.  Bob Balaban (Best in Show). Dan Lauria (The Wonder Years). Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Saved by The Bell…okay, Franklin & Bash). Mark Consuelos (Kelly Ripa’s husband).

And the star of Pitch, Kylie Bunbury, is up for the task. I like her. And I’m intrigued by her character’s story (and the pilot episode’s big twist).

I do worry, though, that the pilot was a bit too complete — how many stories are left to tell?  I guess we’ll see if we stick around — wait for the baseball metaphor — for extra innings.

Had to do it.
