MARK PAUL GOSSELAAR
TO LEAD 'PITCH' BASEBALL DRAMA
Bunch of short TV news today, people and not much else! Starting with Mark Paul Gosselaar who after finishing job in charmingly adorable but undeservedly short lived TRUTH BE TOLD sitcom at NBC will star in FOX new drama PITCH about an outstanding female baseball player (Kylie Bunbury) who makes it all the way to the major leagues. She'll have to share the field with legendary catcher Mike Lawson (Gosselaar), whose initial scepticism gives way to a romantic spark.

  2. I must confess that I've never liked Candice Bergen. I think she's really overrated.

  4. Time After Time? Wasn't that a movie with Malcolm McDowell? 1979 if memory serves.

    I'm glad to see Jason Momoa again. I've missed him since Stargate: Atlantis.

  5. Pitch sounds interesting. I haven't seen Candice Bergen in anything for ages. I enjoyed her in Murphy Brown long ago.

  6. Pitch sounds cute! Maybe something Jason and I could watch together.

    I agree about Candice, but I think she's one of those actresses you love to hate. She's got total bitch quality about her, but that makes her perfect for most of the roles she plays.

    1. Too bad it will be a single camera sitcom :( They've ordered so many single cameras ones I just don't get it, they almost never turn into hits.

  7. I like the title, The Great Indoors. Sounds like it will be funny.

  8. Pitch seems like a tired old concept, but maybe they will do it justice. I will be watching Frontier. I guess I will say, I will give it a chance. Thanks Dezzy!
