The Los Angeles Rams continue to make headlines as it has been announced that they will be featured on this upcoming series of ‘Hard Knocks,’ a reality show produced by NFL Films and HBO.
Though ‘Hard Knocks’ has covered some charismatic teams in the past, this year’s series is especially intriguing as they will cover the franchise’s move and their young and dynamic team out west to Los Angeles:

Awaiting the Rams is a city that has suffered through a 21-year drought without professional football and have anxiously awaited their return. While Los Angeles has one of the youngest teams in the league, they provide an intriguing storyline with a couple Rookies of the Year and the first overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. As a result, Hard Knocks coordinating producer Ken Rogers said picking the Rams was a no-brainer:
“This makes a lot of sense, doesn’t it?”
Some teams in the past have considered the cameras to be a bit distracting, especially during a time like training camp. However, head coach Jeff Fisher has embraced the opportunity and addressed the topic during a press conference:
“We want to be the best show to date. We want this to be the No. 1” Fisher added, “We want to pave the way for clubs to want the opportunity to do this in camp.”
‘Hard Knocks’ featuring the Rams will premiere August 9 on HBO.
