Ali Larter Fox Pitch

Ali Larter Replaces Elisabeth Shue in Fox's Baseball Pilot Pitch

A substitution has been made in the line-up.

Heroes alum Ali Larter has been cast in the Fox drama pilot Pitch, replacing former CSI Elisabeth Shue.

Per our sister site Deadline, Shue’s departure comes after creative differences over the direction of her character, Amelia Slater, a sports agent who doubles as a personal guru for Major League Baseball’s first-ever female pitcher (to be played by Twisted‘s Kylie Bunbury).

Penned by Dan Fogelman (Galavant, The Neighbors) and Rick Singer (Younger), the cast of Pitch also includes Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Franklin & Bash), Mo McRae (Murder in the First), Meagan Holder (Ringer) and Tim Jo (The Neighbors).

Larter most recently appeared in Season 1 of TNT’s Legends.
