On Saturday night, HBO was showing the first season of Ballers staring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The show centers around retired NFL star Spencer Strasmore, who now works as a financial manager along with colleague and friend Joe Krutel. This showing coincided with the release of a promotional trailer for the second season, coming to HBO this summer.
Characters such as Spencer, Joe, and Ricky return for the second season. In the trailer, we learn that Ricky is unhappy about his current contract situation. We also learn that the guys at Anderson Financial start up a rivalry with a top agency in Miami. The first season answered many of the issues presented with the exception of one: Ricky was unable to get back his girl Anabella after a number of slip-ups. This could be another potential storyline not shown in the trailer.
Ballers is HBO’s NFL adoption of its hit series Entourage. The trailer can be viewed below:
