Minor League Baseball is coming to Watch on Facebook in a major way, with some humor, Bill Murray-style.

Actor and comedian Murray and his brother, Brian Doyle-Murray, will host Bill Murray and Brian Doyle-Murray’s Extra Innings, an unscripted series produced by Oso Studios.

The series debuts Monday, Nov. 20, and it will feature the brothers visiting teams including the Charleston RiverDogs, Martha’s Vineyard Sharks, St. Paul Saints and Kansas City T-Bones, as well as organizations such as the Kansas City MLB Urban Youth Academy and the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum.

Oso founder and series executive producer Dub Cornett—co-creator of Mike Judge Presents: Tales From the Tour Bus and The Last Ride—said in a release introducing the Watch on Facebook series: “I dig Minor League Baseball, meeting folks and having fun, and it seems that Bill does, too. So, when I ran into Brian Doyle-Murray at a birthday party, I thought that traveling with the Murray brothers to games around America would be a fun, cool show, and so did they. It’s simple as that.”

Murray added, “A little something to fill a baseball fan’s off-season hole in the heart.”

And Doyle-Murray said, “Doing this project was more fun than a bench-clearing brawl. And like a baseball bench-clearing brawl, no one got hurt.”

New installments of the 10-episode series will debut Mondays. David Cohen is editor of Adweek's Social Pro Daily.
