The Franchise to feature Ozzie Guillen's suspension in first episode
Showtime's behind-the-scenes show, The Franchise: A Season with the Miami Marlins, will feature footage of the Marlins suspending Ozzie Guillen for his comments about Castro. The show premieres Saturday at 9 p.m. EST.
CBSSports.com has three exclusive clips of the premiere:
David Samson suspending Ozzie Guillen
Muhammad Ali visits the Marlins
Hanley Ramirez and Jose Reyes play video games
Also, Showtime has released a trailer for Saturday's premiere.
What looks most interesting, without a doubt, is the fact Showtime had cameras in the office when Guillen was told he'd be suspended for his comments about Castro.
Sure, there will also be plenty of time spent on Jeffrey Loria, the relationship between Jose Reyes and Hanley Ramirez, but Guillen will be the unquestioned star.
I didn't see last year's version of the show with the Giants, but heard good things. This season, because of Guillen, appears to be must-see TV.
