Based on the screenplay by Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel, A League of Their Own is co-created and executive produced by Will Graham and Abbi Jacobson. Field Trip’s Hailey Wierengo and Desta Tedros Reff also serve as executive producers, with Jamie Babbit directing the pilot in addition to executive producer credits.
