It’s finally happening! College football is getting the Hard Knocks treatment from HBO. The network announced it will be following four college football teams on a limited series called 24/7 COLLEGE FOOTBALL. We think the all-caps style is a little much, but you do you, HBO. The show, set to debut October 2, will follow Florida, Penn State, Arizona State and Washington State, and run for four episodes. What can fans expect from the limited series?
For many years, we have been enamored with the storylines and unrivaled traditions of college football, and we’re excited for the opportunity to expand the 24/7 franchise into the realm of college sports. Viewers will feel the tremendous electricity of some of the best atmospheres in the country, and see the meticulous preparation and challenges facing these programs in the build-up to gameday and during the game action. We are excited for the challenge of delivering a four-part series of four different college programs over a four-week period with the production values and storytelling associated with our 24/7 franchise.Rick Bernstein, executive producer
We live in a time where reality tv makes up a majority of the programming we see on network television, so it was about time a show came out that focused on college football. We previously asked the fans how they felt about getting to see the same kind of behind-the-scenes footage with the FCFL teams, and now we’re more convinced than ever this needs to happen. Would you tune in? Let us know!
