How the series was born
While working on Toy Story 4 , Carrie Hobson and Michael Yates realized they had very different impressions of the same meetings, one thought everything was fine, while the other thought the meeting was a disaster. They thought this would be an interesting thing to explore, so they created the original Win or Loose series .
The series follows a mixed middle school softball team in the week leading up to the league game. Each twenty-minute episode follows the same week but from another character’s perspective. It is a comedy about love, rivalry and the challenges we face to overcome in life.
It will debut on Disney + in the fall of 2023 .
