Miami Marlins Will Star in Reality TV Show ‘The Franchise’

The Miami Marlins will be the stars of this season’s The Franchise reality TV show on Showtime.

“Miami is not only one of the most sexy and cosmopolitan cities in the country, but has become one of the best sports towns as well,” said David Nevins, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc. “The Franchise has worked for us because it appeals to both the hard core sports fan as well audiences interested in compelling unscripted drama. A newly rebuilt Miami Marlins franchise full of big player personalities, and led by the larger-than-life Ozzie Guillen, are an ideal team for season two of The Franchise.”

The series, which has already begun production, will air on Showtime and is produced by MLB Productions. The series debuted last year following the San Francisco Giants. The Miami team is in the midst of being re-branded, which includes changing the team’s name and new uniforms — and a new manager Ozzie Guillen.
