Olivia Munn To Play 1970 Sportscaster

The CW is teaming with actress Olivia Munn (“G.I. Joe,” “Mortdecai”) for a new and currently untitled 1974-set female sportscaster drama series.

The story revolves around a young journalist who gets hired by an ambitious New York news programming chief to be one of the first female on-air sports reporters.

She then must learn to navigate gender politics in front of and behind the camera at a time when women were literally not even allowed in the press box.

Ted Humphrey (“The Good Wife”) will pen the script and executive produce with Munn.
