"Caught Looking" Baseball Series To Debut On NBC Sports Network
NBC Sports and MLB Productions tonight on NBC Sports Network will air the debut episode of the new documentary series, "Caught Looking," featuring an inside look at last weekend's Tigers-Rangers series. The matchup is a switch from a Phillies-Cardinals slate originally planned for the debut episode. Network and league officials are looking to spotlight a series with teams in the playoff hunt, and to that end, next week's episode is scheduled to chronicle this weekend's Rays-Angels series, eschewing prior plans to spotlight the Yankees-Red Sox series from N.Y.
NBC Sports President of Programming Jon Miller said this morning of the debut, "We're still literally cutting the episode. But we're very excited. We've gained some really unique stuff that people aren't used to seeing and hearing. Baseball, I thought, was the one sport that you never really got to see fully behind the curtain. But now we get to see and hear it for ourselves." Subsequent episodes this season are slated to air on Thursday nights.
