Cincinnati Bengals To Be On HBO’s “Hard Knocks” For Some Reason

By Ryan

Good news: HBO is returning another season of Hard Knocks in August. Bad news: It’s going to be about the Cincinnati Bengals. Good news: It can double as a season of COPS.

HBO Sports, NFL Films and the Cincinnati Bengals will team up for an all-access look at what it takes to make it in the National Football League when Hard Knocks: Training Camp With the Cincinnati Bengals debuts Aug. 12 at 10pm ET/PT on HBO (HD). It is the show’s fifth season. Other seasons have followed the Dallas Cowboys (twice), Baltimore Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs.

“This is a fascinating team,” says NFL Films president Steve Sabol. “They’ve got a lot to prove to themselves and to the fans.  As Coach Lewis has said, ‘This is a team with a chip on their shoulder.’ Training camp is a laboratory of human emotions and the Bengals have a compelling mix of personalities that should make for dramatic television.”
