PALM BEACH, FL – The Detroit Lions will be the featured team in the 2022 training camp edition of “Hard Knox,” according to an announcement made Monday by HBO and NFL Films for league owners at their annual meeting.
Based on NFL rules to ensure cooperation with the show, the Lions were one of three teams that couldn’t turn down an invite from the series of documentaries that track NFL teams throughout training camp. The other two are the Carolina Panthers and the New York Jets.
Much of the Lions’ allure is coach Dan Campbell, whose vibrant press conferences and one-of-a-kind proverbs brought excitement and interest in his debut for the Lions 3-13 last season.
In a statement, Lions President and CEO Rod Wood said, “We’re excited about the opportunity to showcase the city of Detroit and the incredible culture we’re building at The Lions. HBO Sports and NFL movies are the absolute best, and we know they’ll be excellent partners in sharing our story with our fans. football all over the world.
The Lions will be the 15th NFL team to appear in the “Hard Knocks” season. The Dallas Cowboys have appeared three times, including last year, while the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals have done so twice each.
Last fall, the Indianapolis Colts were the subject of the show’s first edition of the season. It is unclear if this format will be reconfigured in 2022.
