It’s official – for the second time the Cincinnati Bengals, a wild card team the last two years, will be the topic of the summer HBO hit – “Hard Knocks.”
The five-week “Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Cincinnati Bengals” premieres 10 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 6. The one-hour shows will repeat at 11 p.m. Wednesdays. The season finale will be Tuesday, Sept. 3. Training camp begins in late July at Paul Brown Stadium — instead of Georgetown KY, where the Bengals 2009 “Hard Knocks” was filmed.
“The feedback we got from our experience with Hard Knocks in 2009 was outstanding,” said Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis. “Our fans enjoyed it tremendously and we’re happy to try and provide that same experience again. Our fans love the NFL and they enjoy seeing things they don’t normally get to see. We have some outstanding men, both as players and as people. They’ve got great charisma to go along with their football skills, and the Hard Knocks treatment allows for both to shine through.”
