Bill Murray tends to show up wherever he feels like showing up, and one of his next projects will take him to Facebook. The legendary actor and his brother Brian Doyle-Murray are the co-stars of Extra Innings, an unscripted series set in the world of minor-league baseball that will be distributed through Facebook Watch.
Extra Innings is styled as a road trip that will take the Murray brothers to minor league baseball stadiums around the country. “I thought that traveling with the Murray Brothers to games around America would be a fun, cool show and so did they,” said Dub Cornett of Oso Studios, which is producing the series. “It’s simple as that.”
Bill Murray is well known for his baseball fandom. He was a fixture during the Chicago Cubs’ magical World Series run in 2016, and Variety notes he is also a part owner of two minor league clubs. He interacts with players of all ages in the Extra Innings trailer:
The first season of Extra Innings will consist of ten episodes. The first one will arrive on November 20.
