With the full understanding that it’s the sole duty of a trailer to make something look better than it actually is, I must say that this little piece that the makers of The Franchise have put together is sort of incredibly rad.

Just like last year, Showtime is providing a sneak peak episode of The Franchise before commencing with its regular run. This year’s series follows the Miami Marlins in their new ballpark, under a new manager and owned by the same old douche bag. The preview episode will air this Saturday at 9:00 PM on Showtime, with the premier set for July 11.

Update (Drew): we created a gif of the best part of this slice of TV gold. (below the jump)
