According to the NFL, the Los Angeles Rams have been chosen to appear on the upcoming season of HBO’s ‘Hard Knocks’, making them the first NFC West to be featured on the show.
Other eligble teams to appear on the show were the Buffalo Bills, New Orleans Saints, Chicago Bears, San Diego Chargers, Oakland Raiders, and Jacksonville Jaguars.
“It’s clear both in Southern California and nationwide there’s significant interest in the return of the Rams to Los Angeles, and it seemed like a very good year to give people a look at our franchise and our players,” Rams chief operating officer Kevin Demoff said. “We have one of the youngest teams, a lot of talented players — back-to-back rookies of the year — that we want people to start to get exposure to. What better way to do that than ‘Hard Knocks’?”
The first episode will air Tuesday, Aug. 9 at 10 p.m. ET. It will feature the grind of training camp as well as the relocation of the Rams franchise.
