HBO To Air 90-Minute Hard Knocks Special

Football fans won’t have five-weeks of Hard Knocks this summer, but HBO is airing a 90-minute special celebrating the past ten years of the sports documentary on Aug. 31 at 10:00 p.m.

“We know football fans are hungry for compelling NFL programming and we think they’ll love the 10th anniversary special,” said Rick Bernstein, executive producer, HBO Sports.

According to HBO, the Hard Knocks special will feature moments from previous seasons that featured the Baltimore Ravens (2001), Dallas Cowboys (2002, 2008), Kansas City Chiefs (2007), Cincinnati Bengals (2009), and the New York Jets (2010) along with new interviews and never-before-seen out-takes. An official title for the show will be announced in August.

“The first 10 years of Hard Knocks has been the ultimate fly-on-the-wall NFL training camp experience,” said Steve Sabol, president of NFL Films. “We look forward to taking a look back at those shows and reintroducing the fans to those characters who made the decade of Hard Knocks so memorable.”
