The fourth season of HBO football comedy Ballers has now been given a slot on Showcase.
New episodes began dropping at Foxtel On Demand earlier this month (which you can still check out), but it will begin broadcasting with a double episode on September 9.
Spencer Strasmore and an endearing group of colleagues, rivals and pro-football clients return for a new season of HBO’s hit comedy from Steve Levinson (Entourage) that digs deeper into the extravagant, high-stakes, big-money world of professional football. This season, having refused to compromise his principles by joining an alliance with the filthy-rich Anderson brothers to move a football franchise to Las Vegas, Spencer (Dwayne Johnson) and his partner Joe Krutel (Rob Corddry) set their sights on expanding their firm’s foothold in the client-management business, weighing an opportunity to purchase an extreme-sports LA outfit run by the fiercely autonomous Lance Klians (Russell Brand). Meanwhile, Ricky Jerret (John David Washington) eyes a comeback while chafing at his new life as a father; Charles (Omar Benson Miller) faces the myriad challenges of being a general manager; Vernon (Donovan W. Carter) continues his profligate ways, to the chagrin of his sidekick Reggie (London Brown); and Jason (Troy Garity) tries to set Spencer up with a high-school prodigy, Quincy Crawford, and his equally impressive mother Jayda.
Wednesday September 9 at 10.30pm on Showcase.
