Can Pitch catch an unlikely Season 2 renewal? While FOX has invited the cancellation reaper to devour the baseball drama, co-creator Dan Fogelman tells Deadline he’s “optimistic” about its chances:
“I hope I’m not naive. It’s very important to me and I made it clear to all the people at Fox who produce the show.
The metrics and ratings are the metrics and the ratings, and I believe if given time to grow, it will grow.
“I believe in the show so strongly, but the point of entry is difficult, either the baseball or the concept of the show. But once you get past that.
Is Pitch already dead, or can it still score a Season 2 run? Stay tuned…
