HBO take on the glamour and the sleaze of professional American football with their Entourage re-do, Ballers. Starring Dwayne Johnson as Spencer Strasmore, a retired athlete-turned-player agent, guiding their stars through the parties and the breakdowns en route to the top. Though Ballers looks like it’ll fall similarly short on the Bechdel test, Johnson brings a natural charisma that always felt out of reach on Entourage. Let’s just hope they manage to find a little depth and it’s not all surface when Ballers premieres on Sunday 21st June on HBO.
