Felicity Huffman is set to lead an untitled comedy set in the world of minor league baseball at ABC. The project from ABC Signature, Kapital Entertainment and writer Becky Hartman Edwards is inspired by the life of Susan Savage, the owner of the Sacramento River Cats, the Triple-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants.
The untitled comedy marks Huffman's first acting work since she served a brief sentence for her part in the college admissions scandal, in which dozens of parents and a college counselor, William Singer, were indicted on charges they paid to have admissions tests taken for their children or bribed college coaches admissions officers to admit their kids. Huffman pleaded guilty in May 2019 to conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud after allegedly paying $15,000, disguised as a charitable donation, to have another person take her daughter's SAT exam.
