After much rumor and speculation about whether the Lions would be featured on HBO’s “Hard Knocks” the last few years, the time has come for a 30-person NFL Films camera crew to descend upon Allen Park with the five-episode season debuting on Tuesday August 9th, and new shows being released each week until the season finale on September 6th.

The Lions mark the 17th edition of the 18-time Sports Emmy winning series, and that could be good news for the team as 11 of the last 13 teams featured have equaled or improved their win-loss record in the regular season, with the Lions looking to build upon a 3-13-1 finish last year.
