The promo images came following an episode that covered one character's nude photo scandal
Zack Morris fans, you might want to sit down for this one.
Mark-Paul Gosselaar and the rest of the Pitch cast stripped down for teaser photos ahead of Thursday night’s episode — and let’s just say if you weren’t a fan of the Fox show yet, you probably are now.
Saved by the Bell alum Morris, 42, posed solo in a black-and-white shot, wearing nothing but some baby oil and protective kneepads, and his costars followed suit (or lack thereof) in a group shot.
Pitch chronicles the lives of the (fictional) San Diego Padres players, and the naked promo shots come on the heels of an earlier episode in the season in which the main character, Ginny Baker (Kylie Bunbury) had to face the repercussions of a nude photo scandal. Her teammates later posed naked as an act of solidarity.
“The show takes place in the world of baseball, but it’s not about baseball; it’s about the relationships between the players, and their day-in and day-out struggles,” Gosselaar previously told Entertainment Weekly. “There’s comedy, drama, and everything in between.”
“I don’t think I’ve gone through an episode where I haven’t teared up, but that could be because I probably need to go on hormone treatment or something,” he quipped. “I’ll chalk it up less to the hormones, and more to the magnificent writing.”
Pitch airs Thursdays (9 p.m. ET) on Fox.
