Hard Knocks with Jets on NFL Network Craig Thomas
The Emmy Award-winning Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the New York Jets makes its NFL Network debut Sunday, July 3 at 11:00 PM ET, immediately following the series finale of The Top 100: Players of 2011.
The sixth season of the ‘Hard Knocks’ franchise chronicling the 2010 New York Jets preseason garnered NFL Films producers a trio of Emmys in 2010, including a repeat win in the Outstanding Edited Sports Series/Anthology category as well as honors for Outstanding Camera Work and Outstanding Post Produced Audio/Sound.
There was no shortage of storylines surrounding the 2010 New York Jets who, led by head coach Rex Ryan, had high expectations heading into the preseason following a 9-7 finish in 2009 that included a run to the AFC Championship Game led by then-rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez. While the Jets fell short of their charismatic head coach’s Super Bowl guarantee, their season on Hard Knocks was one of the most memorable in the series’ six seasons, becoming the most-watched season ever for the NFL Films-produced series.
Following the debut of episode one July 3 at 11:00 PM ET and encore showing July 4 at 8:00 PM ET, the remaining four Jets episodes will debut chronologically, with one episode per night beginning Sunday, July 4th through Thursday, July 7th, all at 9:00 PM ET. An encore of the entire season airs Sunday, July 10th beginning at NOON ET.
