"Ballers" (TV show) on HBO is a comedy series, starring Dwayne Johnson ("San Andreas," "Furious 7") , that looks at the lives of former and current football players.

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.

The cast includes Dwayne Johnson as Spencer Strasmore, John David 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.

Season 2

Things are getting more competitive and complicated for retired football star turned financial manager Spencer Strasmore. As the lines between professional and personal blur in his pursuit of lasting success and glory, Spencer must face demons from the past when he goes head-to-head with the biggest business manager on the scene.

Meanwhile, Spencer's closest friends and clients struggle to find their footing. A humbled Ricky explores his options as a free agent, while getting to know the father who left him behind; Charles tries to balance a new baby and his future in the game; and Vernon deals with the consequences of his life off the field.

Returning to help Spencer juggle lucrative deals and big personalities are his outrageous business partner, Joe, level-headed agent, Jason and girlfriend/sports reporter, Tracy. In a business where it's go big or go home, Spencer and his crew are about to learn that having it all means being ready to fight for more dollars, deals and respect.

"Ballers" is created and executive produced by Steve Levinson. Other executive producers include Mark Wahlberg, Peter Berg, Dany Garcia, Julian Farino, Evan Reilly and Rob Weiss.
