According to Variety, Showtime, your Miami Marlins, and Major League Baseball are very close to signing an agreement that would feature your Miami Marlins during the second season of Showtime’s “The Franchise.”
Last season an average of 651,000 viewers watched this documentary series which followed the 2010 World Champion San Francisco Giants for eight 1-hour long episodes chronicling Giants players, coaches, and staff both on the field and off.
I greatly enjoyed watching “The Franchise” last season. The camera crew got down and dirty and you learned a lot about what goes on behind the scenes during games and allowed a very intimate look into many of the players personal lives. Yes Brian Wilson is one crazy individual and my initial impression of him was only proven correct by watching the show.
I cannot wait to see what happens behind the scenes during Marlins games especially in the new ballpark and seeing the home lives of Hanley Ramirez, Logan Morrison, Jose Reyes, Ozzie Guillen, and the whole gang. It will be better than any reality show.
Till next week ladies and gentlemen.
