VIDEO: Bill Murray and His Brother Brian Doyle-Murray to Star on Unscripted Minor League Baseball Comedy Series
“Extra Innings” debuts Nov. 20 on Facebook WatchNovember 13, 2017
Bill Murray and his brother Brian Doyle-Murray star on a new unscripted comedy series about minor league baseball.
Debuting later this month on Facebook Watch, “Bill Murray and Brian Doyle-Murray’s Extra Innings” follows the Murray brothers as they take a road trip through America and check out a variety of minor league baseball games and stadiums along the way. Each of the show’s 10 episodes will only be eight minutes long, but the series will also see the brothers visit a variety of ballparks, interact with a multitude of fans, and also spend time at the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and with the Kansas City MLB Urban Youth Academy.
Bill, a renowned Chicago Cubs fan who last month sang “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” at a playoff game, also sings the theme song for “Extra Innings,” co-written by him, Brian, and Paul Shaffer.
The show is “a little something to fill a baseball fan’s off-season hole in the heart,” Bill explained in a statement.
“Doing this project was more fun than a bench-clearing brawl. And like a baseball bench-clearing brawl, no one got hurt!” Brian added.
This upcoming series isn’t Bill and Brian’s first collaboration, either. The two also teamed up recently to open a “Caddyshack” themed bar in a Chicago suburb.
“Bill Murray and Brian Doyle-Murray’s Extra Innings” debuts Nov. 20 on Facebook Watch. Check out the trailer (above) and check out Bill’s 2014, in-studio Stern Show debut here.
