The NFL promised an announcement about "Hard Knocks" on Thursday at halftime of the New York Giants-Washington Football Team game.
And it delivered. The preseason classic is going to have its first in-season run.
"Hard Knocks In Season: The Indianapolis Colts" will debut on Nov. 17.
Indianapolis was also handled easily in its season opener by the Seattle Seahawks. It plays against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 2.
"We could not be more thrilled to bring Hard Knocks and the remarkable behind-the-scenes access it provides for the entirety of an NFL season," said Ross Ketover, NFL Films Senior Executive. "Thanks to HBO, along with the incredible cooperation from the Colts, we are able to deliver a groundbreaking new edition of the series."
