Series: The Franchise
"Well, here we go."
Tim Lincecum, "Season One, Preview Episode"

The Franchise is a Reality Show currently airing on Showtime as of August 2011. Its first season followed the 2011 season of the San Francisco Giants, after their 2010 season, which culminated in them winning the World Series. The second season follows the 2012 season of the Miami Marlins, who recently moved to a new stadium, bought an influx of new talent, and have renamed their team from the Florida Marlins. The series currently has a 'preview episode' and eight standard episodes, and each episode focuses on one or two players on the squad, going deeper into their life stories and current problems.
