Ballers

This HBO comedy explores the sun-soaked world of a group of past and present football players in and around Miami, Florida. Though they’re pros when it comes to playing the game, each has a harder time navigating life off the field.

Leading the pack is Spencer (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson), a retired football superstar who is trying to find a foot hold as a financial manager to current players. Spencer’s inner circle includes a talented but volatile wide receiver Ricky (John David Washington), who seeks to balance his off field antics with his passion for the game; Charles (Omar Miller), a reluctantly retired line man who’s finding it hard to adjust to civilian life; and rookie sensation Vernon (Donovan Carter), whose promise never to forget “where he came from” brings scores of hangers-on into his life, and lands him in big financial trouble. As Spencer tries to juggle his friends, he gets assistance from Jason (Troy Garity), a top-tier sports agent, and Joe (Rob Corddry), Spencer’s larger-than-life boss, who’ll do just about anything to close a deal. In an industry where the career span is unbelievably short, Spencer and his crew must figure out where the game ends and life begins, all while keeping their cool and having each other’s backs.
