Disney to Develop Mo’ne Davis Movie

Mo’ne Davis on this week’s national Sports Illustrated cover

Development is underway on a Disney Channel Original Movie "Throw Like Mo" — a biographical movie that will tell the inspiring story of Mo'ne Davis, the 13-year-old sports prodigy who made history in August 2014 as the first female to pitch a shutout in the Little League World Series. Davis, a member of Philadelphia's Taney Dragons, and the first Little League player to make the cover of Sports Illustrated, will consult on the movie.

"Throw Like Mo," will be executive-produced by the Emmy Award-nominated producer Debra Martin Chase ("The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants," Disney Channel's "The Cheetah Girls" movies and "Lemonade Mouth"). The writers are Sheldon Candis (writer and director of "LUV," "A Slave in the White House" and director of Under Armour's Misty Copeland campaign "I Will What I Want") and Justin Wilson ("LUV," "A Slave in the White House"). espnW, which has extensively covered the achievements of Mo'ne Davis, will also consult on the movie.
