The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reports that a television executive is planning a 13-episode reality TV series, "Minor League," that will feature the hometown 2009 Red Wings and air on PBS stations across the country a year from now.
Presumably, the baseball series would be attractive to WNED-TV, Buffalo's local PBS station, because there should be a good deal of Buffalo in it.
The newspaper reported that camera crews documenting the off-the-field activities of the Wings "will be restricted to one-hour bus trips to Buffalo and Rochester."
It sounds like a good idea to me, similar to the HBO series on NFL training camps, "Hard Knocks."
What do you think of the idea? Would you watch the series?
