SEPT. 2 EPISODE
HBO Sports, in association with NFL Films and the Cincinnati Bengals, provides an all-access look at what it takes to make it in the National Football League in HARD KNOCKS: TRAINING CAMP WITH THE CINCINNATI BENGALS. The first sports-based reality series – and one of the fastest-turnaround reality series – continues its five-episode season WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 2 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO. Subsequent hour-long editions air each Wednesday at the same time, culminating in the Sept. 9 season finale.
Each week, players experience drills, meetings and fun, while struggling to prove they have what it takes to make the team and make their mark in the NFL.
