The hardest working man in showbiz (if not the hardest, he’s certainly one of them) Dwayne Johnson returns as Spencer Strasmore for season 2 of “Ballers” on July 17 at 10PM.
Looking at the lives of former and current football players, “Ballers” follows former superstar Spencer Strasmore (played by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) as he gets his life on track in retirement, while mentoring other current and former players through the daily grind of the business of football.
“The charismatic and hugely talented Dwayne Johnson, along with the rest of the ‘Ballers’ cast, has truly struck a chord with the HBO audience,” said Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming, after the series was renewed for a second season. “We are thrilled with the overwhelming response the series has received and look forward to another exciting season.”
Omar Benson Miller, John David Washington (Denzel Washington’s son, in his first major acting role), Donovan Carter, Troy Garity, Rob Corrdry, Jazmyn Simon, and Arielle Kebble also star in the series, which is set in Miami, FL, and is created and executive produced by Steve Levinson, with executive producing duties by Mark Wahlberg, Peter Berg, Dany Garcia, Julian Farino, Evan Reilly and Rob Weiss.
HBO has released a first full trailer for the upcoming new season.
