Raiders to be Subject of HBO's Hard Knocks

The Raiders are going to be the subject of the popular HBO show, "Hard Knocks", which follows a struggling NFL team through the pre-season.

“If you’re a fan of football or great storytelling, 'Hard Knocks' with the Oakland Raiders is going to be must-see television,” executive vice president of HBO Sports Peter Nelson said in a statement. “We are so grateful to this storied franchise for opening up its doors and allowing HBO and NFL Films to spend the summer with the Raiders in what promises to be a compelling and engaging training camp.”

Raiders owner Mark Davis said, “Everybody wants to be a Raider. Now they’ll find out what it takes to become one.” The show will premiere on August 6. Last year, the show followed the Cleveland Browns.
