Bill Murray is teaming up with his brother to launch an online show about minor league baseball.

The 10-episode unscripted comedy series debuts on Facebook Watch on Monday (Nov. 20) with new episodes - each running about 8 minutes - available weekly on Mondays.

"A little something to fill a baseball fan's off-season hole in the heart."
"And like a baseball bench-clearing brawl, no one got hurt!"

According to Engadget, they will also visit children at the Kansas City MLB Urban Youth Academy and the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. Teams like the Martha's Vineyard Sharks (a collegiate summer team) and the Charleston RiverDogs (the New York Yankees' Class-A affiliate) will be visited by the Murray brothers, but they aren't just limiting themselves to ballparks. "It's simple as that", said Cornett, per Variety. The Murray brothers even co-wrote and performed the theme song you hear above, along with former David Letterman bandleader Paul Shaffer.

Oso founder Dub Cornett explained that the concept for the show arose from a chance meeting between himself and Brian Doyle-Murray.

"It was like being on a vacation, in a weird way", he added. The first episode of "Extra Innings" will premiere November 20 on Facebook Watch.
