New comedy series featuring Dwayne Johnson as Spenser Strathmore

*There is  a new series on the HBO horizon  that will look at the lives of former and current football players and NO, its not another reality show!  Thank God!!  “Ballers” is a new comedy airing in 30 min segments, with a  first broadcast date of June 21, at 10pm E/P.

The comedy series follows Spenser Strathmore (Dwayne Johnson) mentoring fellow footballers,  past and present, on how to get through the day-to-day grind of all things football.  Omar Benson Miller, John David Washington (Denzel Washington’s son), 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, reports Shadow and Act.

And,  if that is not enough ballin’ for you, there is a new movie coming out with the same title, starring the hilarious  Kevin Hart,  (this ought to be good) opposite Le Bron James.
