ABOUT HARD KNOCKS:
Hard Knocks is a reality sports documentary television series produced by NFL Films and HBO. The show was first broadcast in 2001, and the current 2015 season is the tenth. Each season, it follows a National Football League (NFL) team through its training camp and covers the team’s preparation for the upcoming football season.
The series shows the personal and professional 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 emphasis on the team’s most recent top draft pick. It usually also chooses to focus on undrafted and journeyman players who are attempting to make the team.
The NFL and HBO have called Hard Knocks “the first sports-based reality series” in television history.
