A baseball “Hard Knocks” series featuring the Giants? Why not?

Entertainment Weekly reports:

Is Showtime looking to steal a page from the HBO playbook and air its own Hard Knocks-type series? EW has learned that Showtime is in early talks with producer Mike Tollin to do a docuseries that focuses on the San Francisco Giants.

I think the same people who came up with the term “docuseries” came up with “dramedy” back in the 80s. Remember John Ritter in “Hooperman?”  Nah, me neither.

Anyway, I suppose this would be worth watching.  But my guess is that they’ll just give Tim Lincecum, Brian Wilson and Pat Burrell all the screen time, hoping that they do something wacky.
