Showtime Makes Big Push Into Sports With Bevy Of Original Programming

ONE GIANT LEAP: In N.Y., Bob Raissman noted Showtime's proposed TV series surrounding the Giants "appears to be on thin ice." It seems as if the players, "many of whom were not informed about the show before Showtime and MLB Productions went public with their plan, don't want any part of cameras following them around for an entire season." That "doesn't mean the reality show won't get off the ground," but "judging by the initial reaction of some Giants players, it won't have the total access quality of other reality projects," like HBO's "Hard Knocks" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 2/13).
