"Pitch" (FOX) Star Kylie Bunbury Wants the Show to Empower Young Girls






“Baseball is just the backdrop of this show. The show is about, from my character, figuring out who she is. It’s a coming of age story for Ginny, and it’s about working really hard to attain a dream. It’s about the human experience and real things that are going on. You’re getting to see real human beings going through real life things that everyone can relate to, and then we just so happen to be ball players.”

“I think it is really important for young girls to see themselves [on TV], so the fact that I’m a woman of color playing a strong female character is incredible. It is incredibly important, because I know things that I watched growing up made an impact on my choices, so I hope this will have an impact on young girls’ choices as well and empower them.”
