Showtime’s “The Franchise” is one of the most compelling sports programs I’ve ever seen. They capture moments the average fan usually doesn’t get to see. This season, the show is following around the Miami Marlins. For the two of you who don’t know, Ozzie Guillen is must-see television.
Here’s a 32-minute sneak peek, which features Guillen’s five-game suspension for favorable comments regarding Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. The show takes you behind the scenes to the actual moment the manager was suspended by team president David Samson.
The season premiere is July 11 and will be appointment viewing.
