The San Francisco Treat: Giants Enter Season As One Of MLB's Hottest Draws
Published February 18, 2011
GIANTS, SHOWTIME ON SAME PAGE: Showtime Sports Exec VP & GM Ken Hershman said that after some "early miscommunication with the ... Giants, the club 'likes what they are seeing so far' of a new show documenting the team's 2011 season." Some Giants players and execs were concerned about the show being a "Hard Knocks"-style reality show, but it will be filmed in documentary form instead. Hershman said, "We told them exactly what we are doing and that changed the whole dynamic in a positive way. We said, 'You'll see as we roll out what we'll be doing, we're just here to document,' and they like what they are seeing so far. ... There wasn't any great drama involved. MLB has done a great job in walking them through what they should expect." Hershman "hopes that this will be the beginning of a regular series." He said, "We're hoping to have other teams knocking at our door to be next" (Ben Grossman, BROADCASTINGCABLE.com, 2/18).
