Showtime and MLB Productions have revealed a little more information about the docu-series following the World Champion San Francisco Giants. The show, now called “The Franchise: A Season with the San Francisco Giants,” will get a sneak preview Wednesday April 13, two weeks after Opening Day. The series premiere is slated for Wednesday, July 13.
The companies also released a great trailer, which unfortunately is not embeddable. Check out the trailer here.
As we reported in January, the show will follow the team through the entire 2011 season, giving viewers a behind-the-scenes look at what happens when the players aren’t on the field.
There are also cameras in the players’ cars (see photo above) which is, um, cool, in a voyeuristic way.
If the show does well, look for “The Franchise” to become a franchise for Showtime in the same way “Hard Knocks” has become for HBO.
