Dan Lauria Joins Fox Baseball Pilot
Veteran Dan Lauria is set to co-star opposite Kylie Bunbury and Mark-Paul Gosselaar in Pitch, Fox‘s drama pilot written by Dan Fogelman and Rick Singer and directed by Paris Barclay.
The project, from 20th Century Fox TV, follows Ginny, a young female pitcher who defies the odds when she becomes the first woman to play in the major leagues. Lauria will play Al Sciutto, the baseball team’s grizzled but steady manager.
Also previously cast in the pilot were Mo McRae, Meagan Holder, Tim Jo and Mark Consuelos. Singer and Fogelman executive produce with Barclay, Tony Bill and Helen Bartlett.
Wonder Years alum Lauria recently starred on the TBS comedy series Sullivan and Sons. He is repped by TalentWorks and Jeff Berger Management.
