In the this season’s second episode of “Ballers” premiering this Sunday, July 30 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, Spencer Strasmore (Dwayne Johnson), a retired NFL player-turned-financial manager, tries his luck in Las Vegas. The network’s most-watched comedy follows Spencer as he endeavors to bring an NFL team to the City of Lights (Pictured: Dwayne Johnson as Spencer Strasmore in “Ballers”).
The Cosmopolitan acts as the premier location in the episode that features Spencer leveraging the backing of a billionaire casino owner to get a professional football team to call Las Vegas home. Tune-in to see how a familiar storyline plays out with a little help from Hollywood magic.
Last Sunday’s premiere was HBO’s highest-rated half hour show since 2011, and up 41% from last year’s premiere.
“Ballers” was created by Stephen Levinson and executive produced by Johnson, Stephen Levinson, Mark Wahlberg, Dany Garcia, Peter Berg, Evan Reilly, Rob Weiss, Julian Farino, and Denis Biggs. Please check local listings for specific broadcast time.
