The Detroit Lions will be the featured team in the 2022 training camp version of “Hard Knocks,” according to an announcement made Monday by HBO and NFL Films to league owners at their annual meeting.
Based on NFL rules for ensuring cooperation with the show, the Lions were one of three teams that could not turn down an invitation from the documentary series that follows NFL teams throughout training camp. The other two were the Carolina Panthers and New York Jets.
A major part of the Lions’ allure is coach Dan Campbell, whose colorful news conferences and unique aphorisms brought levity and interest to his 3-13 debut with the Lions last season.
Hard Knocks this summer will be starring the Detroit Lions.
