"The Franchise" (Showtime TV show) is an acclaimed sports documentary series that takes audiences into the normally private world of a professional baseball team.

In Season 1, the series gave viewers a front row seat into the lives of the players, coaches and team personnel of the San Francisco Giants as they began the arduous task of defending their World Series title through the 2011 MLB season. In Season 2, the series will follow the new look Miami Marlins.

Under the new leadership of charismatic and always outspoken manager Ozzie Guillen, the Miami Marlins have the baseball world buzzing with the recent acquisitions of All-Stars Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle, Heath Bell and Carlos Zambrano who will join a group of established young stars including Hanley Ramirez, Josh Johnson and Mike Stanton. Additionally, the Marlins have launched an extensive re-branding of the club this off-season which has included a name change from Florida to Miami, the construction of a new ballpark and the unveiling of dramatically new uniforms.
