Hard Knocks: Los Angeles:

The NFL's upcoming 2020 season is shaping up to be one of the strangest in history. With preseason games cancelled due to COVID-19, football fans might be looking for a way to satiate their thirst for the game until the 2020 season officially begins next month on September 10 — luckily, HBO's sports docuseries Hard Knocks is back for a 15th season to hold fans over until then.

Season 15 marks the very first season of the show in which two NFL teams will be featured instead of only one. This year, the docuseries will take viewers inside the private and personal lives of athletes and coaches of the Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers as they prepare for the upcoming 2020 season and all that it entails.
