The Atlanta Falcons will be featured this summer on HBO Sports’ award-winning documentary series 'Hard Knocks' the team announced on Thursday.

The Falcons, HBO Sports, and NFL Films will team up for an all-access, behind the scenes look at what it takes to make it in the National Football League when Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Atlanta Falcons debuts on August 5.

A 30-person NFL Films crew will be at the Falcons’ training camp at team headquarters in Flowery Branch, shooting more than 1,500 hours of video over the course of the five-week series. Camera and sound crews will be given unencumbered access to the players’ and coaches’ meeting rooms, training rooms, dormitories and practice fields.

“We are excited about the opportunity to give our fans a behind the scenes look at what it takes to prepare an NFL team for the rigors of a 16-game regular season and beyond,” Falcons owner Arthur M. Blank said in a statement. “This marks the first time that our franchise will be featured on Hard Knocks and we look forward to showcasing our great players and coaches to football fans all across America.”

The five-part reality series featured the Cincinnati Bengals last year and averaged 3.6 million viewers per episode.
