If you want to see what Dan Campbell is like at all hours of the day, just wait for HBO’s ‘Hard Knocks’ this season.

The Detroit Lions will be featured on the HBO series this summer, which chronicles one team’s training camp and preseason through a series of episodes released weekly. It usually features a ton of behind the scenes interviews, a look inside meetings, big decisions, preseason sidelines and player profiles.

The Lions were one of a few teams that have never been featured in the series. It’ll surely be entertaining with head coach Dan Campbell leading the charge.

HBO’s Hard Knocks will premiere Aug. 9, and finish on Sept. 6, as teams open training camp and begin the preseason. It’ll be the show’s 17th season.
