Raiders flag

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- The Raiders will be the subject of a popular HBO show that follows a struggling NFL team through the preseason.

The team tweeted Tuesday afternoon that they would be the subject of HBO's "Hard Knocks."

“If you’re a fan of football or great storytelling, 'Hard Knocks' with the Oakland Raiders is going to be must-see television,” executive vice president of HBO Sports Peter Nelson said in a statement. “We are so grateful to this storied franchise for opening up its doors and allowing HBO and NFL Films to spend the summer with the Raiders in what promises to be a compelling and engaging training camp.”

“Everybody wants to be a Raider. Now they’ll find out what it takes to become one,” said Raiders owner Mark Davis.

The show will premiere on Aug. 6. Last year, the show featured the Cleveland Browns.
