The hit comedy series BALLERS and INSECURE will kick off their new seasons back-to-back SUNDAY, AUGUST 12 on HBO.
BALLERS returns for its fourth season SUNDAY, AUGUST 12 (10:00-10:30pm ET/PT). The show looks at the lives of former and current football players, following former superstar Spencer Strasmore (Dwayne Johnson), who has reinvented himself as a financial manager. This season, Spencer and Joe (Rob Corddry) take their skills to Los Angeles as they look to expand their roster and horizons in the world of action sports. Other cast members include John David Washington, Omar Benson Miller, Donovan Carter, Troy Garity, London Brown, Jazmyn Simon and Brittany S. Hall. Created by Steve Levinson; executive produced by Stephen Levinson, Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, Peter Berg, Rob Weiss, Julian Farino, Denis Biggs and Karyn McCarthy.
A quick summation of Season Three reminds us that it was all about expansion of the agency, the birth of an NFL team for Las Vegas and, on the personal front, Spencer’s legacy. The recap below of the final episode reminds us of where everyone is at:
Spencer decides he wants out of a relocation deal and instead tries to use ASM to help keep the team in Oakland. He persuades Joe, Mr. Anderson and Julian to back out of a merged offer with the other business group and invest in the city’s long-term future. Then, he surprises the league with a charming appeal to keep the team in their city. Melvin helps him with his new pitch by organizing a protest outside Spencer’s meetings, getting scores of team fans to show their support. ASM wins the bid for a stadium, but the win is bittersweet: The team is still moving to Las Vegas. Spencer won’t agree to any deal that moves the team, so he opts out of the revised offer and gets the Anderson brothers to invest additional capital into the expansion of their sports management business. ASM won’t be sold, they’re only growing. Reggie helps Vernon convince the league to get his suspension reduced, showing off his natural and maturing negotiation skills. Then, Reggie helps Vernon’s Dallas teammate, star defensive end Dexter Baines, navigate a PR disaster. Jason arranges an interview for Charles for a vacant GM position in Los Angeles. Charles impresses the organization that he has strategy and leadership savvy to improve their team over the long haul. Ricky stops at Amber’s door to ensure her he’s committed to her and their child. He proves he’s ready to switch his priorities by announcing his retirement from football.
Which leads us to Season Four and this clip.
