"Hard Knocks In Season: The Indianapolis Colts" will premiere
Wednesday, Nov. 17, and run every Wednesday for the remainder of
The Colts are coming off a playoff run in 2020 but started the
season with a 28-16 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
Indianapolis has plenty of storylines for the show. These
include Carson Wentz trying to revive his career after falling
out of favor in Philadelphia, the relationship between Wentz and
coach Frank Reich, the play of star linebacker Darius Leonard
and the ongoing pandemic.
"We could not be more thrilled to bring 'Hard Knocks' and the
remarkable behind-the-scenes access it provides for the entirety
of an NFL season," NFL Films senior executive Ross Ketover said
in a statement. "Thanks to HBO, along with the incredible
cooperation from the Colts, we are able to deliver a
groundbreaking new edition of the series."
"Hard Knocks" first premiered on HBO in 2001. Except for 2011,
when the league had an offseason lockout, the show has followed
at least one team every preseason since 2007.
The Dallas Cowboys were the stars of this summer's season. It
was their third time being featured.
The Colts have never been featured on the show.
