Created by Steve Levinson (Entourage, Boardwalk Empire) and featuring an impressive executive-producer pedigree (see below), this all-new HBO comedy explores the sun-soaked world of a group of past and present football players in and around Miami, FL. 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 foothold 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 lineman 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.
Spencer Strasmore and an endearing assortment of colleagues, rivals and pro-football clients return for a brand-new season of HBO’s hit comedy from Steve Levinson (Entourage) that digs deeper into the extravagant, high-stakes, bigmoney world of football in Miami, FL and beyond. This season, after baring his soul at the NFL rookie symposium and checking into rehab for a pain-killer habit, Spencer, along with longtime colleague Joe Krutel, returns to ASM with a new outlook and fresh goals, hoping to forge bonds with new players across the country while improving his relationships with existing clients. Meanwhile, Ricky Jerret weighs money vs. glory in choosing his next team; Vernon Littelfield adjusts to younger competition after accepting a contract from Dallas; ex-Dolphin Charles Greane learns that coaching is at least as all-consuming as playing; and Jason Antolotti continues to orchestrate deals to satisfy both players’ bank account and their oversized egos. This season, in an ever-changing business where the shelf life for stardom and multi-million-dollar contracts are oh-so-short, Spencer is intent on proving that the key to successful sports management isn’t just about making money and having fun – it’s about delivering on the promises you make.
