SINGAPORE – Created by Stephen Levinson and starring Dwayne Johnson, Ballers returns for its nine-episode fourth season, same time as the US on Monday, August 13 at 10am (SGT/HKT), with a same day primetime encore at 11pm, exclusively on HBO. The comedy series will be streaming on HBO GO and will also be available on HBO On Demand.


Exploring the glamorous, often cutthroat, world of pro football through a group of past and present players striving to stay in the game, Ballers stars Dwayne Johnson as ex-superstar Spencer Strasmore, who has reinvented himself as a financial manager for today’s players.


After refusing to compromise his principles by joining an alliance with the filthy-rich Anderson brothers to move a football franchise to Las Vegas, Spencer and his partner Joe set out to expand their foothold in the client-management business, weighing an opportunity to purchase an extreme-sports LA outfit.


Meanwhile, Ricky eyes a comeback while chafing at his new life as a father; Charles faces the challenges of being a general manager; Vernon continues his profligate ways, to the chagrin of his sidekick, Reggie; and Jason tries to set Spencer up with a high-school prodigy, Quincy Crawford, and his equally impressive mother, Jayda.


Other returning cast regulars include John David Washington, Rob Corddry, Omar Benson Miller, Donovan Carter, Troy Garity, London Brown and Brittany S. Hall. Returning guest stars include Carl McDowell, Jazmyn Simon, Robert Wisdom, Richard Schiff and Steven Weber. New guest stars for season four include Russell Brand, Joy Bryant, Ernie Hudson and Grace Zabriskie
