Hard Knocks Marathon on NFL Network

Posted Jun 29, 2010

Bengals fans, get your DVRs ready.

As part of NFL Network’s programming for the upcoming July 4th weekend, the network will air a special marathon of the NFL Films-produced series Hard Knocks featuring the Bengals.

The Emmy-award winning Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Cincinnati Bengals makes its NFL Network debut Sunday, July 4 at 8 p.m. ET with episode No. 1 of the fifth season. The remaining four episodes from season five will debut chronologically, with one episode per night Monday, July 5 through Thursday, July 8, also at 8 p.m. ET. An encore of the entire fifth season airs Sunday, July 11 beginning at 8 p.m. ET.

Hard Knocks documents the daily challenges and interactions that come with a career in professional football. Each season focuses on a specific team, giving viewers a unique and candid glance into the lives of their favorite players and coaches. Episodes offer a captivating behind-the-scenes look into the highs and lows of preseason training, all while displaying the superior film quality and sound of an NFL Films product.  

The show has been praised as the first sports-based reality series and boasts one of the fastest turnaround times of any show of its type, with seasons premiering just weeks after training camp finishes. Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Cincinnati Bengals was the recent recipient of a Sports Emmy in 2009 for Outstanding Edited Sports Series, and two past seasons—2007 Kansas City Chiefs and 2008 Dallas Cowboys—have won Sports Emmys for their industry-leading production and composition. Set in late summer and focused on America’s favorite sport, Hard Knocks is the perfect addition to any fan’s 4th of July weekend.
