After a long half year without football, the NFL is finally back, and it all begins with HBO’s Hard Knocks! This season, they will be in training camp with the newly relocated Los Angeles Rams.
Hard Knocks is a reality sports documentary TV show produced by a partnership between NFL Films and HBO. The show’s first season, which followed the Baltimore Ravens, premiered in 2001. Each season, Hard Knocks follows an NFL team through its training camp and covers the team’s preparation for the upcoming football season. The NFL and HBO have called Hard Knocks “the first sports-based reality series” in television history.
The series showcases the lives of the players, coaches and staff, including their family life, position battles, and even inside jokes and pranks. It particularly focuses on rookies’ adjustments to playing in the NFL, usually with the most emphasis on the team’s most recent top draft pick. The show also usually chooses to focus on undrafted and journeyman players who are attempting to make the team.
A film crew of 30 is on-site at the training camp and set, which launched in 2001 following the Baltimore Ravens, and since has won 14 Sports Emmys. On March 23, 2016, it was announced the Los Angeles Rams will be the team featured for the 2016 season premiering on August 9, 2016.
The first episode of Hard Knocks was awesome, especially the hilarious scene where Coach Jeff Fisher had to cut rookie wide receiver Deon Long because he had a lady in his room at night, which was in violation of the rules. Tonight’s episode promises to be just as great, so make sure to find out how to live stream it below!
