2024 Slate of Sports Dramas – Movies

Sizzle Reel

Travel Ball, an original screenplay by Bruce McAlester, is an ensemble sports drama about a father and daughter struggling to hold on. It’s about intense competition driving a wedge between best friends, and a coach who lives through his players to rewind his past. They’re all on a collision course with hope, money, and the love of a simple game.

A licensing agreement has been reached with Major League Baseball, and the script vetted by Manchester City F. C., Perfect Game, and ECNL for production partnerships.

Lions Gate & Tigar Hare Studios tapped director Bruce McAlester for his visual style and ability to work with dramatic actors. Bruce directed the talented lead actress Natasha Calis in the motion poster for the hit film, The Possession. This digital project was awarded the Hollywood Reporter Key Art Award.



The most important project on Bruce’s slate with regards to making a difference in society is Chelsea’s Light, A Brother’s Journey.
