Ozzie Guillen and Logan Morrison are soon coming to a TV screen near you.

The Miami Marlins have been selected to be the focus of Showtime's documentary series "The Franchise," Showtime and Major League Baseball Productions announced Monday.

The Marlins figure to be a popular choice with the team on the rise. They hired the outspoken Guillen while committing $191 million in free-agent contracts to Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle and Heath Bell during the offseason.

Morrison, who tweets under the handle @LoMoMarlins, is one of the more lively athletes on Twitter, constantly engaging with fans.

The San Francisco Giants were featured on last year's version of "The Franchise."
