Here’s A Preview Of Showtime’s Series About The San Francisco Giants, ‘The Franchise’

Showtime certainly knocked it out of the park (Get it? Ha!) by selecting the World Series champion San Francisco Giants as the team they chose to feature in their upcoming series, The Franchise: A Season With The San Francisco Giants. This is not only because it would have been silly to have a show where the title contains the name of a team that doesn’t even make an appearance in it, but also that the squad from the Bay Area is chock full of interesting stories and compelling personalities: Tim Lincecum, Barry Zito and “Kung Fu Panda” Pablo Sandoval to name of few, but most importantly, perhaps the most compelling and eccentric major leaguer playing in the big leagues today, Brian Wilson. I mean Brian Wilson, people. Forget about it.

The Franchise: A Season With The San Francisco Giants premieres on Showtime this Wednesday, July 13th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. I’d call that appointment television, folks. And trust me, I know all about things like these.
