David Ortiz may be a world famous athlete and a World Series MVP...but the Dominicano can add one more title to his resume: producer!

According to Fox News Latino, the Boston Red Sox slugger is pursuing endeavors outside of baseball, and will be producing his own MTV television show. MTV Networks and Major League Baseball announced Monday that they are collaborating on a weekly 30-episode series that melds pop culture and baseball.

Ortiz has signed on as executive producer, along with Pittsburgh Pirates All-Star outfielder Andrew McCutchen.

The series will air on MTV2, and will be shot at the MLB Fan Cave, a Manhattan facility that hosts exclusive events for baseball fans, including concerts and meet-and-greets.
