Singapore – Starring Dwayne Johnson in his first major television series, HBO’s new series Ballers explores the whirlwind lifestyle and real-life problems of a group of former and current football players.
The series kicks off its ten-episode season same time as the U.S. immediately after True Detective – 22 June at 10am (9am Thai.Jkt), with a same day primetime encore at 10pm (9pm Thai.Jkt) on HBO. New episodes debut on Mondays at the same time. Ballers will also be on HBO GO from 22 June and HBO On Demand* (StarHub TV Ch 602) from 29 June.
Spencer is a retired football superstar who is trying to reinvent himself as a financial manager for current players in sun-soaked Miami. His inner circle includes Ricky, a talented but volatile wide receiver who seeks to balance his off-field antics with his passion for the game; Charles, a reluctantly retired lineman who’s finding it hard to adjust to civilian life; and Vernon, a player with a rookie contract, whose promise never to forget “where he came from” brings scores of hangers-on into his life, and lands him in big financial trouble. Though they’re pros when it comes to playing the game, each one has a harder time navigating life off the field.

Washington as Ricky Jerret, Omar Miller (CSI: Miami) as Charles Greane and Donovan Carter as Vernon Littlefield. Other series regulars include Troy Garity (Barbershop), Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine), London Brown (The Hustle) and Jazmyn Simon.
