Hard Knocks: Offseason with the New York Giants will premiere on July 2 at 9 pm ET on HBO while also streaming on Max.

New episodes will be released on subsequent Tuesdays through July 30.

The five-part series, produced in collaboration with NFL Films and Skydance Sports, is set to chronicle the Giants’ preparations for their 100th season.

Cameras have been following general manager Joe Schoen, his front office, and other members of the team since January.

The end product will be a deep look at the franchise navigating the offseason period until July 2024.

Hard Knocks will cover the decisions New York made during free agency, the NFL Scouting Combine, the 2024 draft, and team minicamps.

The series promises to offer “unprecedented access to the biggest decisions and boldest moves” with Hollywood and Broadway star Liev Schreiber narrating.

“As we enter our 100th season, we look forward to providing our fans with the opportunity to see what it takes to build an NFL roster,” Giants senior VP Nilay Shah said in a press release.

HBO and NFL Films will also produce a traditional training camp version of Hard Knocks with the offseason iteration serving as “the opening act,” NFL insider Adam Schefter reported Wednesday.

“We are beyond thrilled that the New York Giants have opened their doors to the Hard Knocks cameras for the first time ever,” said HBO executives Nancy Abraham and Lisa Heller.

“The NFL offseason is a fascinating period that we’ve always wanted to explore.

“We can’t wait to show football fans everywhere what NFL Films has been capturing behind the scenes at the team’s headquarters.”

Hard Knocks first debuted in 2001, winning 18 Sports Emmy Awards since then.

“We are incredibly proud that Hard Knocks is widely thought of as one of the most successful and entertaining unscripted sports franchises ever produced,” NFL Films senior executive Ross Ketover said.

“To be able to expand on the Hard Knocks universe, and with an elite franchise in the Giants while they celebrate their 100th season, is a privilege for all of us at NFL Films.”

The Giants finished the 2023 NFL season with a 6-11 record.

In free agency, they lost star running back Saquon Barkley, who signed with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Among New York’s main offseason roster additions were pass rusher Brian Burns, running back Davin Singletary, as well as wide receiver and No. 6 overall pick Malik Nabers.
