TVLine Items: Once Vet Lands Pitch, Gilmore Girls Marathon and More

JoAnna Garcia Swisher is stepping up to the plate for Fox’s baseball-themed drama Pitch (premiering Sept. 22).

The Once Upon a Time alumna will recur as Rachel Patric, a Katie Couric/Megyn Kelly-type newscaster and the ex-wife of Mark-Paul Gosselaar’s catcher, per The Hollywood Reporter.

Swisher — who most recently appeared on the late Fox comedy Grandfathered — makes her debut in Episode 2 of the series, which follows the first woman (Twisted‘s Kylie Bunbury) to play in Major League Baseball.

    Good, hopefully that means Cortney will be leaving soon then. Can’t stand this storyline.

    As for Gilmore Girls, what do we do during that 1 minutes betweens the old and new episodes!

    JoAnna Garcia will forever be Cheyenne from Reba in my eyes. I refuse to accept her as a Once Vet. XD I can’t wait to see her in Pitched.

    • lrdslvrhnd says:

      Yeah, she was in, what, 3 eps? 4? Whereas she had a starring/leading role in at least 5 shows that I can think of (maybe 4, dunno how big a role she had in that Astronaut Wives one)

      • kitsunesaru says:

        She was one of the more important wives on Astronaut Wives, which she was really great on (played wife of Gus Grissom, who died on Apollo 1 ((or 2)) so she hot to have a range of emoting)

    • Phil says:

      Megan from Privileged! My favorite former JoAnna Garcia show. Although, Better With You was also highly enjoyable and very much missed.

    Do you think Swisher’s husband will give her some advice on how to interview an athlete?
    What is Donny? I’ve never heard of it.
    I’ve loved watching GG on Up and now that they’re showing Parenthood, I almost feel like I’m in TV nirvana!

    Someone give her a lead role!
