“Hard Knocks” is switching it up.
For the first time in its 20-year run, the HBO football documentary will follow a team mid-season. “Hard Knocks In Season: The Indianapolis Colts” will premiere on Nov. 17 and follow Carson Wentz, Frank Reich and Co. in similar fashion the acclaimed documentary series has done for NFL training camps.
The show will air on Wednesdays instead of Tuesdays, but will still feature Liev Schreiber as a narrator. Per a press release from HBO, the show will air for at least nine consecutive weeks.
It will be the Colts’ first time on “Hard Knocks,” which typically picks a new team every year. The Cowboys, who were featured on the traditional training camp season of the show this year, had previously been on the show twice.
“We could not be more thrilled to bring Hard Knocks and the remarkable behind-the-scenes access it provides to the NFL regular season,” NFL Films senior executive Ross Ketover said in a press release. “For years, fans have clamored for expanding the Hard Knocks world to include an in-season edition, and thanks to HBO, along with the incredible cooperation from the Colts, we are able to deliver.”
The Colts started their season 0-1 after a 28-16 defeat at the hands of the Seahawks.
