HBO’s “Hard Knocks” isn’t the only TV show chronicling the Rams during their inaugural season in Los Angeles.
The team, which moved to L.A. from St. Louis, Missouri, during the off-season, is the focus of an upcoming E! docu-series, the network announced Wednesday.
Titled “Hollywood & Football,” the six-episode series follows the players and their families as they acclimate to their new home in the City of Angels.
“We are excited to take viewers inside the exclusive lifestyles of these top athletes and their families as they navigate a new city, new friendships, new schools and the inevitable Hollywood gossip,” Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Programming & Development, E!, said in a statement.
“E! has a track record of success with pop culture programming centered in the world of sports, and this series will capture the off the field perspective of one of football’s most anticipated and high profile events as the Rams return to LA.”
The Rams previously played in Los Angeles from 1946-1979 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum (now home of the USC Trojans), before moving to Anaheim from 1980-1994, and then to St.Louis. They are set to return to the Coliseum for the 2016 season while they wait for their new $1.86 billion stadium in Inglewood, California, to open in 2019.
“Hollywood & Football” is a T Group production with Jenny Daly, Rob Lobl and Shauna Thomas serving as executive producers.
