The Giants reality show is actually going to happen
Major League Baseball just made it official: that reality show on Showtime featuring the Giants is a go:
They’re going to start filming soon, getting guys back at home and following them on their way into and through spring training. There will be a preview episode opening week, but then the show will go on hiatus until the second half of the season when it begins airing regularly.
I presume the lag is to give the producers time to frame things just so, dramatically speaking. Shines will be put on losing streaks. Time will be allowed for contrived “I love you, bro” scenes to explain away clubhouse strife after it happens. And if things go well -- which is totally boring -- there will be time to create faux drama.
Because there’s only one constant about reality shows, and that’s that they’re not all that real, frankly.
